Great Concept

Huxley creates an intricate and seemingly plausible dystopian society. As a warning to the reader to evaluate the current real-world situation, Huxley poses many questions about our political and economic state in the midst of capitalism, explores many moral and spiritual questions, and challenges the reader to think for himself in the context of the world that he has created. Thought the book is lacking in substantial plot points throughout the end of the novel, the world is built so expertly and startlingly that the lack of plot-crafting is largely compensated for by the haunting ideas and questions that linger, even from the first pages.

Highly recommended

I think everyone should read this book. It's fascinating and frightening.

One of my favorites

Brave New World has long been one of my favorite future dystopias. I find myself coming back with wonder to a world that confuses Ford and Freud. It is a fascinating and cautionary read.

Great
