|"This is a wonderful book that is barely younger than the first mapping of fly genome, basically the brain child of what the study of genetics may become. Though, I never really concidered it a prediction of what the world may come to, but rather an artistic vision. If you even halfway liked the novel then you should see the movie BRAZIL. Its a great fun si-fi distopia bureaucracy movie by Terry Gilliam (The Monty Python Guy)."|

You can't find a German translation?
The ending kinda sucks, but the rest of the book is pretty interesting.... even though it's totally implausable. There are certain human instincts that override culture, including the urge to nurture (which is why so many single women have cats! :P ) and the tendency to have one relationship at a time. The 'bottled babies' and 'everyone belongs to each other' things wouldn't work for those reasons.
