Annotation

Dystopia. Overregulated and over-protective society based on science achieving near-immortality. Anti-socialist. People are generally bored, unwilling to take risks. Food is the only pleasure. No family ties. No children born to keep population in balance. The one child born (to replace someone killed by lightning) grows up romanticizing the past. Some follow her in leaving the society to reestablish that past.
