Monday Book Recommendations: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30

Monday is the day I choose what new books I’m going to start reading but I have so many books in my To Read Pile that sometimes it’s hard to choose so I have decided that on Monday mornings I’ll recommend some  of  my favorite books.


Title: Brave New World
Series: -
Author: Aldous Huxley
Date Published: September 1st 1998
Publisher; Harper Perennial

Publisher: 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...
Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.



This is one of those "Classics" that after reading them you understand why they are considered Classics, my only thought after finishing it was wow.
