I finished it, but it was a chore.

Not a big fan of this. Just my personal opinion but I really don't like Huxley's writing style, seems a bit obvious to me. I didn't once find myself admiring the way he had written something. This book is just for the story really, which is only marginally interesting because it is unusual and I like dystopian fiction. In my opinion this may be the only reason it is so widely known and studied, because it presented a vision of a future that at the time evoked a sense of fear, particularly because of the advances being made in medicine and technology. None of the characters are particularly engaging or three-dimensional. Each to their own though, you may love it!
