A shy young poet encounters an assortment of strange characters at a house party in the English countryside and desires to tell his host's beautiful niece of his love for her.
About the Author
Aldous Huxley was born in 1894 near Godalming, Surrey. He began writing poetry and short stories in his early twenties, but it was his first novel, ‘Crome Yellow’ (1921), which established his literary reputation. This was swiftly followed by ‘Antic Hay (1923), ‘Those Barren Leaves’ (1925) and ‘Point Counter Point ‘(1928) – bright, brilliant satires in which Huxley wittily passed judgement on the shortcomings of contemporary society.

If you love reading great dialogue, the timing, cadence and rythm are brilliant! If this hasn't been made into a movie, it should be.
It is amazing how rich such nothing can be! It can be a philosophical treatise, a sermon, a funny short story, a tragedy and romance. And it is - it is all of these things.
The book is not particularly good overall - it is a hodgepodge of a little bit of everything. But, oh my, you really can see the beginnings of a literary genius! It was Huxley's first published novel - he was a kid of 25 then, so there's no surprise that the novel is not of top quality. But even then and there he wrote some of the best paragraphs I have ever seen. It is a strange, uneven book, sometimes almost boring, at other times totally captivating. Three stars for the quality and another on the top of that for the opportunity to see the genius in development
