Frighteningly Prophetic  Oct 13, 2008
Brave New World / 0-06-092987-1

While "Brave New World" may lack the narrative punch of other dystopias such as "1984", I cannot help but feel that for sheer prophetic rightness, Huxley hits the nail on the head where others fail. Where Orwell sees an oppressive government that frightens and tortures its populace into submission, Huxley envisions a world where government control is total and yet unnoticed, simply because the population does not care.

Why care about your government when there is so much more fun stuff to be doing? There's soma - a happy-pill that counters all sadness, doubt, and anxiety - to take, romances to conduct, entertainment to consume, and so many other more interesting things to think about. And don't we see that today, in the news media (I second the reviewer who mentioned Postman's wonderful "Amusing Ourselves to Death"), with reports that are more focused on entertainment than on the dissemination of information.

Huxley's insightful book is an individual wake-up call to us all - a reminder never to become so complacent that we simply stop caring about the greater world around us.
Dystopia, i long for thee  Aug 23, 2008
I purchased Brave New World after reading 1984, and while I must confess that I enjoyed Orwell's book just a little bit more, Huxley's work was still an immediately compelling read. I think what I liked best was just how "british" this future was, by which I mean, everything seemed so very posh and hip and how we Americans would tend to see the British, as opposed to (sorry to keep drawing comparisons) 1984, whose depictions of England were much more how they might be viewed by say, South Africa.

Another thing I liked about the story was that I didn't particularly care for any of the characters that much. I actually enjoyed the disappointment of having each character let me down just when I thought their basic goodness would shine through. Initial protagonist Bernard Marx is far from the jaded idealist that one wants to believe he is, instead vying for vapid acceptance in the shallow society that he is ostracized from; Lenina Crowne does not become enlightened to Marx or the Savage's ways of living and remains blissfully baffled by each of them, and wistfully goes on enjoying the meaningless sex and soma holidays; even John the Savage becomes unrelatable, turning into something of a zealous monk who becomes so averse to any feelings of personal satisfaction that he... well, read the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed Brave New World and will in all likelihood pick up Brave New World Revisited in the near future.
Good Book  Aug 8, 2008
An excellent book with an excellent plot and perfect examples of external and internal conflicts among the characters and the society in which the characters live in.
A very confusing and incomprehensable book.  Jul 29, 2008
The moment you read the first page of this book, you know you are in trouble. There is no clear explaining done about any of the super natural things going on in this utopian society the book tells about. The author seems to just assume that everyone will just imagine the same thoughts that popped into his own head as he was writing this book.
The book seems to have no point either. First you have a weird society in the future. Then a man who was actually born from a former member of that society makes his way there. He doesn't adapt, and after his mother dies, he becomes a hermit and at the very end hangs himself.
I will give credit for the author's imagination, given that the book was written in 1932. He talks about television and helicopters and jet planes as if they were an everyday thing.
not for weak swimmers  Jun 30, 2008
The beginning is like swimming up current; the reader has to kind of force his/her way into the story, which is made hard by the boring torrents of Huxley's writing style and I often found myself wishing I'd be lodged under a rock to drown in the river that is this book, to just die there and be free from the thoughts that spill into these pages. But, I make it a point to always finish a book, and surprisingly, at times I found myself captivated in the story. The first few chapters make this book hard to get into, but, on the bright side, it picks up a little and there are some beautifully written descriptions that erase my regret for ever picking up this book. However, if you are impatient or easily bored, you won't make it far. If you want a story that'll captivate you from the first page, don't even bother with this book. Try "The Alchemist."
