Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.Hide synopsis

A classic. Futurist. Predates Orwell's 1984 by almost two decades. Social engineering is not Stalinian " Big Brother" nor workplace obsolescence but sensual conditioning: movies become the "feelies"; recordings during sleep make on love one's class (white, green etc); "soma" pills regulate reproducitve ...

Who's to decide what is superior? Why does technology, science, materialism, sexuality, standardization ...
Brave new world is a creepy view into what the world could become. With everyone genetically engineered to do their job and brain washed to not ask any questions. It tells the story of a man who asks all the wrong questions and does not want to comform to society.
