^I'm reminded of a scene from Dr. Strangelove where the good doctor is telling us about the ratio of men to women which is directrly opposite to what you are describing here. It's an interesting point, but hard to correlate given how few characters (people and letters) that are named.
I ejoyed the book. I had read Brave New World earlier this year and 1984 a couple of decades ago. I liked this more than BNW. While it's hard to completely buy the rational over the emotional I did like the struggle put forth here within the mind. I was disappointed that the journal didn't succumb to being more mathematical in structure. 32 records would have been a great mirror to the story.
