I love books that take you places you did not even think about it going and this book did not disappoint! It had a different, interesting perspective on distopia / utopia themes.

“Teach me, chile, and I shall Learn. Take me, chile, and I shall Escape. Focus my eyes, chile, and I shall See. Consume more chiles. I feel no pain, for the chile is my teacher. I feel no pain, for the chile takes me beyond myself. I feel no pain, for the chile gives me sight. —Transcendental Capsaicinophilic Society, 'Litany Against Pain'”
