'Utopian Dreams' offers one writer's attempt to retreat from the 'real world' in order to better understand the available alternatives to our modern manners and morality. Instead of cynicism, loneliness and depression - is it possible to be idealistic, to find belonging and companionship with others who share your sadness, or even, perhaps, your happiness?

I had high hopes for this book, about a man who takes his young family to live in 5 different "intentional" communities. However, his writing style just bugged me. Also, out of the 5 he chose, 3 were heavily Christian communities, which bothered me. Did not like this book. Read full review
