If you never read another book read this one!
on 18 August 2017
I had never thought to read this book and was actually searching for a film (The Shape of Things to Come) which I thought was from a story by Aldous Huxley. Instead I bought Brave New World and am glad to have do so. Written at a time (1932) when science fiction was very much still in its infancy the predictions of medical and technical advances are remarkable for their accuracy and the changes to social mores coupled with eugenics is frighteningly familiar. This book should be compulsory reading for everyone, in particular those world leaders (both secular and religious), scientists, the armed forces, industrialists and overzealous do-gooders who wish to impose upon in so many ways.
