Another downside: The Kindle edition contains a significant amount of transcription errors, such as incorrect/missing punctuation in some chapters. I hope the physical editions of this book are better-made.
Would recommend this to fans of dystopian fiction, especially because it's a unique take. The Sheep Look Up doesn't have the overbearing government of 1984, the blatant censorship of Fahrenheit 451, the issues of The Handmaid's Tale, or the flawed yet pristine setting of Brave New World.
However, rereading it so many years later, parts of it were quite dated, even though the general message still sadly holds true today.
