Publisher Description

Brave New World is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English author Aldous Huxley, published in 1932. Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society which is challenged by only a single individual: the story's protagonist. Huxley followed this book with a reassessment in essay form, Brave New World Revisited (1958), and with his final novel, Island (1962), the utopian counterpart. The novel is often compared to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Fascinating look at the future that could be

Fascinating look at a dystopian future society that very certainly could happen today! The ending was intensely vague but poignant.

The title fits, I believe, because the book is prophetic

I really enjoy Aldous’ ideas in this story. It gives insight as to what’s makes us human. I thought the story is perfectly centered around the ideas expressed and didn’t require character development or having to be character driven so I don’t mind the lack there of. However, I’m aware that’s a common complaint. It’s thought provoking and that’s good enough for me.
