Book review: "Utopia"

My wife discovered this 2003 volume in our local library. At first, I was completely uninterested. A thriller set in a theme park, I thought, big deal. But Lincoln Child's novel engaged me when it came to the descriptions of the theme park. Wow, do I want this place to exist in real life. But best of all, Child seems to know all of the tenents that made Disneyland great: the emphasis on immersion and theme, the trillions of minute details that are not merely extra cost, and so on. I don't know if Child is a Disney fan, but I can tell you that Disney fans will be fans of Child, too.

Buy Utopia from Amazon.
