THE BIRDICT

I'm fairly late to the party on this one, I'm sure, but what a read. Funny and thought provoking, this is a timeless piece about human nature versus nurture, consumerism and the meaning of happiness. <br/><br/>The humour in it is beautifully dry, the characters wonderfully awful. I think it's going to take me time to dissect every morsel of this tome. I found myself torn between hating the society they created and envying their carefree existence. After all, who couldn't use some soma every now and again?

ABOUT

Brave New World

THE BLURB

When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.
On the 75th anniversary of its publication, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media: has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.
