    "Utopia by Thomas More is a philosophical satire. It has nothing to do with Penguin the publisher, but it is a classic."

    "An interesting read by 16th century author, Thomas More. It provides a glimpse of how society functioned during that time period. As Thomas is writing about a fictional land, it's interesting to compare it to how society truly was during Thomas' time."

    "Utopia is not an exciting read, but it does date back into the Renaissance period and how life was and should be before political parties were added into society. This book explains both sides of the political spectrum in the past. "

    "People have come along way through the history to establish the standards and norms that we perceive as functional today. Political, social and economical disciplines that we have right now and that we abide with, have historical background which is worth learning and comprehending. Utopia by Thomas More is an ideal depiction of how the societal tribes tend to develop established disciplines among themselves to live by. In this fictional land, every aspect of their life, is comparable and justifiable from the standpoint of real life perspectives that we humans may see. The intriguing contrast that Thomas has incorporated in this book has truly captured me and has delivered mesmerizing experience for me"

    "As the original Dystopian fiction book, this one sets the bar high. You can really tell that More was drawing from his own life experiences to weave this tale. It's full of insight and cultural commentary that is still relevant today. I think more people today need to read this."

    "Thomas More makes you feel as if you are one of his characters in this extremely interesting book about an island that is governed and ruled only by the people. Captivating read. Makes me want to live in UTOPIA."

    "This kind of classics are not always easy to read, but thankfully the English translation I read was not difficult to read at all. Thomas More wrote Utopia originally in Latin back in 1516, and in it he reveals some both very interesting and puzzling ideas on what the ideal society would look like. I can't say I agree with everything he said, but every aspect of the Utopian society is well elaborated and shows exactly how things would work for the inhabitants of Utopia. The beginning of Utopia reads a bit slow, but as soon as the story starts elaborating the different aspects of Utopian life the pace picks up considerably. All in all quite an interesting read for those who are interested in philosophy and politics."

    "Thomas More's Utopia is an interesting book but it doesn't meet the requirements to be called a book of historical fiction. The writing is a little stale but the ideas are timeless."
