"What Aldous Huxley presented as fiction with the human hatcheries of Brave New World has become fact. The consequences are profound and, if we don't get it right, deeply disturbing" (John Humphrys Sunday Times)
"Huxley's nightmare, set out in Brave New World, his great dystopian novel, was that we would be undone by the things that delight us" (Guardian)
"The 20th century could be seen as a race between two versions of man-made hell - the jackbooted state totalitarianism of Orwell's Nineteen Eight-Four, and the hedonistic ersatz paradise of Brave New World, where absolutely everything is a consumer good and human beings are engineered to be happy" (Margaret Atwood Guardian)
"Aldous Huxley was uncannily prophetic, a more astute guide to the future than any other 20th century novelist ... Nineteen Eighty-Four has never really arrived, but Brave New World is around us everywhere" (JG Ballard)
"It is impossible to read Brave New World without being impressed by Huxley's eerie glimpses into the present" (New Statesman)
"A brilliant tour de force, Brave New World may be read as a grave warning of the pitfalls that await uncontrolled scientific advance. Full of barbed wit and malice-spiked frankness. Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling" (Observer)
Witty, thrilling and uncannily prophetic: Brave New World remains a startling warning against a future that seems eerily present alreadySee all Product description

Great book really enjoyed it i found it to be smarter than 1984 which in my view was notoriously depressing... In a way it conveys a similar story and meaning but in a completely opposite manner which was fascinating.
The product itself was in impeccable quality when I recieved it, it broke my heart to annotate all over it as it was so beautiful.
The story is extremely interesting and I would remcommend this book to anyone. Huxley is a fantastic writer and should be more widely considered as one of the greatest writers of his time.

The first few chapters were convoluted and opaque.
The book read like a 1960s comic ( Victor or Hotspur ).Read more
