About the book

image4.0/5.0

A fantasy of the future that sheds a blazing critical light on the present--considered to be Aldous Huxley's most enduring masterpiece. "Mr. Huxley is eloquent in his declaration of an artist's faith in man, and it is his eloquence, bitter in attack, noble in defense, that, when one has closed the book, one remembers." --Saturday Review of Literature "A Fantastic racy narrative, full of much excellent satire and literary horseplay." --Forum "It is as sparkling, provocative, as brilliant, in the appropriate sense, as impressive ads the day it was published. This is in part because its prophetic voice has remained surprisingly contemporary, both in its particular forecasts and in its general tone of semiserious alarm. But it is much more because the book succeeds as a work of art...This is surely Huxley's best book." --Martin Green

You hear a lot about 1984 but, really, it seems that society is leaning more towards a “Brave new world”

Read it for the first time now, as this was not part of our school curricula (mistake - it should be part of every!) and it‘s fucking brilliant! Huxley‘s dystopian society raises so many fundamental questions that are relevant today as they were at the time when this book was written. What should society sacrifice for the feeling of comfort and happiness?
