Mostly adventure and romance, but a flawed high-tech utopia is present that is vegetarian, telepathic, can communicate with animals, has painless euthanasia for both humans and animals, and has an island with no government set aside for higher education where men and women are free to go to study and teach. But the society is also hierarchical with slavery and has treated one group as not even able to be slaves. The ending indicates that some of this will change.
