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

?Brave New World is ahead of its time. An eerie light is shone on today?s society through this book.?
Aldous Huxley takes you into the future with this amusing and innovative science fiction novel. Due to a disease that cased temporary blindness, Huxley was able to write this novel since he couldn ...
Really didn't much enjoy the writers style and quite honestly didn't find the book that interesting. Primarily read it because of the many references to it in other texts. Didn't expect a lot and didn't get a lot.
The future possibilities are so true it's disturbing. It takes the what-ifs of the unknown, of the future, and turns it into a world where everything glorified in the present is taken to the extreme.
Who's to decide what is superior? Why does technology, science, materialism, sexuality, standardization ...
