The novel presents a complex future that those living in it see as a eutopia or a flawed utopia and can be read as a dystopia. In the future people have left Earth and live in Habitats that circle the sun. These people undergo Excision or the removal of the amygdalae to eliminate strong emotions. Part of the novel focuses on conflict between those for whom the surgery was entirely successful and those where it was not, and these people desire power.
