A Brave New World
But, in the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre, Bernard Marx is unhappy. Harbouring an unnatural desire for solitude, feeling only distaste for the endless pleasures of compulsory promiscuity, Bernard has 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…
A fantasy of the future that sheds a blazing critical light on the present--considered to be Aldous Huxley' s most enduring masterpiece.
What is there to say about this book? Really, it is a funny book. At the same time, it teaches the reader so much about human nature, government, family, and sex. Yes, sex. The book was very strange in the sense that so many things about it were not realistic at the time, nor our time, but I can see occuring in the future. Back in Huxley's days, i'm sure sex with multple partners was not smething common, yet it is today. I'm also pretty sure that a lot of other issues in the book that are not common now, will be common one day. It's an early predictment to the future in a way. Loved it.
I had to read this book for school and it was a really interesting book. It was very wordy book and takes a lot of work to the good stuff and get the meaning of the book. You will be really mad at the ending of the book and most of the characters you will hate, but it teaches you the disadvantages of a forced Utopian world. Overall it is a worthwhile read but maybe not for a casual read.
This book is amazing. It talks about an unusual future that although in many ways is good in many other ways it is horrible. It makes us appreciate many things that may seem unimportant and really makes you think. In this future many things have changed such as that there are no longer parents and love no longer seems to exist. This is a very thought provoking book.
This book examines a society in which the government rules all, no one is born, and everyone lives for the pleasure of the moment. However, in this society there are those few who find themselves unsatisfied and different. This book follows their progress and how living in an all controlled society affects them.
This books is fascinating to see what people thought communism could bring the the 1920s. The intricacies of the world are fascinating to learn and the book is intriguing. However, I found that the farther I read into the book the less exciting it became.
Very interesting book. It shows a possibility of what the future may be like. A very good "utopian" book. It makes you think somewhat, it's also a bit frightening to think this may happen, to think that everyone would conform, and hardly anyone would question who they are. Excellent read.
GREAT PLOT! Great character depth. Very political and satiracal. The characters were very real, and its a very realistic peek at what the future may hold. Very heavy though.
We all want to be happy right? This books looks into this basic want and its fufillment. It is slightly weird, but it is perfect for every teen to read and look around (and draw parallels in our conformative society). It leaves you with a great message and questions. Its so great, that you can't take it lightly.
