Brave New World, Hardback
2 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society.

Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers.

Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring 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...

It was OK, but overall a bit too predictable. It felt more like an essay than a novel. Also I thought some of the reaction of some characters didn't feel appropriate to their education or their conditioning. How can the savage have such a vision about the civilisation by reading shakespeare only?
