The astonishing novel Brave New World, originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley's vision of the future-of a world utterly transformed. Through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, people are genetically designed to be passive and therefore consistently useful to the ruling class. This powerful work of speculative fiction sheds a blazing critical light on the present and is considered to be Huxley's most enduring masterpiece. Following Brave New World is the nonfiction work Brave New World Revisited, first published in 1958. It is a fascinating work in which Huxley uses his tremendous knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with the prophetic fantasy envisioned in Brave New World, including threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion.… (mer)

Was Huxley prophetically talking about the World of today when he imagined his "Brave New World"? Maybe the author had a strong intuition or maybe he was just a keen observer of humanity, but Huxley's insights in last century's early 30's resemble a lot the society of today: a society in which individual liberty, is replaced by an all-powerful-state, a surge of individualism and isolation in detriment of independent thinking and authenticity, the rise of authority, surveillance and control. The "Brave New World" depicted by Huxley does not look brave nor new anymore, but Huxley's message is still fresh and the words written almost 100 ago echo now as loud as ever. ( )

Entertaining read yet so thought provoking. When you consider this was written pre world war III, it is even more amazing to consider the predictions of the future as real possibilities, which is exciting and terrifying. On the surface, the brave new world sounds great with happiness, peace and efficiency, however characters like Bernard and helmhotz show us how much this limits our freedoms and what a truly terrifying dictatorship that world would be. Reading Huxleys thoughts in Brave New World revisited several decades later provides another interesting view and better realization of how quickly some of the events he predicted came about. It would be amazing to see his reaction to things in the world today and how they relate to his thoughts then, such as widely available birth control, invitro fertilization, the Internet and social media ( )

Really great, & terrifying, lives up to the hype. ( )

Despite the age of author's observations, they are as relevant today as they were then. There are things in the book that are of historical interest and currently not a threat or clearly outdated but the warnings of propaganda and manipulation are a greater threat than ever ( )

"Brave New World" is a dystopian novel by Aldous Huxley that envisions a future society where technological and scientific advancements have led to a highly controlled and regimented world.

Set in a World State where citizens are engineered, conditioned, and segregated into castes, the novel explores themes of conformity, consumerism, and the loss of individuality. The population is kept content through the use of a happiness-inducing drug called soma. The story follows Bernard Marx and John the Savage as they grapple with the dehumanizing effects of this highly organized society, raising questions about the price of progress, the value of individuality, and the potential dangers of sacrificing human emotions for stability.

Huxley's "Brave New World" remains a classic work of dystopian literature, offering a provocative exploration of the trade-offs between technological advancement and human well-being.

A squat grey building of only thirty-four stories.
Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment.  (Preface)
In 1931, when Brave New World was being written, I was convinced that there was still plenty of time.
