In a purely egalitarian world, Equality dares to stand apart from the herd--to think and choose for himself, to discover electricity, and to love the woman of his choice. Part Eleven had a natural end point, and I actually thought after reading it that that was the end of the novella. They must be equal to all the others, never do anything unexpected, they lead a life of a herd - even the thought of wanting something makes them convulse in self-disgust. Together, they begin a journey of self-discovery and learn the meaning of what it is to be truly free, to no longer be slaves to their fellow men. Through a series of experiments, he learns about the power of electricity. Instead, we read non-redacted copies of Mark Twain novels, full of the n-word. A city where people are not enslaved in collectivism, but where their true greatness can be realized.

No, even though he did great in school and aspired to learn, he was assigned the job of a street sweeper. Unsurprising that it is this character who feels a pull towards the concept of individualism, as there is something extremely selfish about him and his views, and he appears to have a complete disdain for other people except the Golden One While I adore the plot, this novella is only 50 pages, and it was overly ambitious to try and work it all in.

Presumably they live happy ever after within their gated community.

It's important to take this book with a grain of salt - it's a parody, a caricature, not a speck more.
