The Millennium, by Upton Sinclair. It was one of his more obscure and unnoticed novels that he wrote after the tragedy which ended his experimental utopia, Helicon Hall. It's essentially a satire of caste systems, social evolution, and extreme capitalism. It's a nice read, albeit short and not to thought-provoking, but it's still nice.
