If you read a contraband book or so much as look at a smuggled painting, you've committed a crime. To keep the peace, citizens must take their daily doses Prozium, a powerful designer drug that stops feelings dead and keeps everyone on an even keel. Refuse to take the drug and special police will find you.

But then he skips his own dose of Prozium--and discovers an incredible new world of sensation that gives him the passion to fight for freedom.
