One of my favourite books of all time, so I was pretty disappointed to miss 5 of the answers (including the main character's name - I just drew a total blank on it!). I think I need to re-read it...

I agree with Tramp, except that is my favourite book of all time. Besides the main plot, it was a brilliant idea to amend the language to make it harder or even impossible to express certain thoughts and thus harder actually to think them.
