Format: Paperback
I read this book in university and it was one of my favorites. It is such a warped look a utopian society but it is everything we want....isn't it. Casual sex is the norm and the introduction of soma, a drug with no side effects makes the future and adults playground. There is no families, babies are not born, but decanted test tubes. People are born into a specific class, and intellegence is altered. I don't want to give too much away, but I'll just say that I highly recomend reading it if you like dystopic fiction or sience fiction.

Format: Paperback
With its vivid description of everyday activities such as the "feelie" movies and classification of every human into one of five letter and color groups, Huxley's Brave New World is a fun read for young adults and teens.
The Brave New World is a sort of Utopia, where humans are not born to mothers; they are bred in bottles and slowly travel by way of a huge conveyor belt through various machines during the gestational period. Those babies who will become astronauts spend a majority of time upside-down in the bottles, and those who will work in the jungles are submitted to a higher than normal temperature throughout the process. The embryos which are destined to be in one of the lower classes (Epsilons or Deltas) are purposefully deprived of oxygen so that they will not be "born" too intelligent for their class. In light of the current progressions that we have made with cloning and genetic alteration, it seems that Huxley has shown us one distinctly possible direction that society could wind up taking...
The book begins with a tour through the "decanting" factory.. recently fertilized eggs are artificially multiplied in the "Bokanovsky Process", which can create almost 100 identical embryos from a single egg. The lower classes will be multiplied to the highest degree, while the Alphas (the upper administrative class) will be individuals. The tour continues up to the nurseries where the children are conditioned every day to enjoy their lot in life. Some of this conditioning is done through aversion therapy, while some of it is drilled into the childrens' heads while they sleep. This sort of conditioning is what leads to a perfectly controlled world.

I was amazed at how this book, written 80+ years ago, seemed to capture current society's obsession with material goods and shallow pursuits. My first time reading it, somehow never crossed paths with it before. I recommend it.

Lets all go back to this classic novel! Make sure to read "1984" afterwards. If you are wondering what book to read during summer holidays, this is it.

a thought provoking classic. Is this where society is heading? Do we prefer to be sheep or live and feel? I thoroughly enjoyed rereading this classic

Huxley knew way ahead of time where our consumerist society was going and boy, was he spot on. Hard to believe this was published before WW2

I think the topic that this author explores for the time that it was written, while using the knowledge and events of the time... -it's brilliant.

Brave New World entered Canadian Public Domain on January 1, 2014. This publication has numerous errors in spelling, punctuation, layout and more. While the price is reasonable for a public domain work, I might suggest a better publisher.

Book 5/5 stars; this sloppy publication, 1/5 stars.
