The subtitle is "A history of the Utopian Revolution." It is exactly that and my answer to 1984, The Handmaid's Tale and Brave New World among other things. I don't mind telling you the rebels win in the end because throughout the first read you _won't_ know which of those very sympathetic characters will live to see the end of it.
Intricate plotting, high paranoia and the slow revelation of Utopian government lies to both the reader and the rebels keep this book a thrillride up to the very end. I don't want to hand out spoilers, skim it for yourself to see if it's your flavor because I let it stand on its own merits in the category of "epics like DUNE or Star Wars."
"You did build this place." It was old. She knew that. "What did you do, hide in coldsleep?"
"Close enough" came the answer. Marek laughed again. He thought something about the situation was hilarious. Janna wanted to slap him.
The man was valuable to the resistance. He was a technician, perhaps an engineer. He'd been a rebel long enough to be experienced, to keep his head unlike her reckless partner. He sounded older. They needed people like that. If he was a blank, so much the better. Cold sleep itself would throw them off the track, they wouldn't look in files that could be centuries old. She tightened her jaw.
He was a little too perfect and he might just be a plant.
