Erewhon, by Samuel Butler

A philosophical exploration reminscent of Swift's Gulliver's Travels. Butler's parody is a bit facile, but he made me smile. I must do more research in order to figure out what the heck he was making fun of with 'the evolution of the machines' chapter - which could have come right out of a work of modern science fiction.

The hives are fading.

Samuel Butler, not Samuel Johnson.
