From Amazon:

Erewhon (an anagram for "nowhere") is a faraway land where machinery is forbidden, sickness is a punishable crime, and criminals receive compassionate medical treatment. Butler's brilliant Utopian novel is an entertaining and thought-provoking work, taking aim at such hallowed institutions as family, church, and mechanical progress.

An intelligent, inventive, and humorous Utopian novel that takes aim at hypocrisy in society.

Vegetarianism, technological development, religion are all mocked brilliantly by Samuel Butler. A bit philosophical and slow at points.
