    The Erewhon classic is a revised book and well appreciated by readers like myself to appear as a page turner. The conclusion for this book is that the novel has merit by the revision for our sake and EREWHON is a novel we enjoyed reading because the novel leaves us in the full flow of so many imagery like the balloon and the statues/5.
