by Aldous Huxley


Brave New World tells the story of life in the World State, a new civilization in which everything appears to be perfect. It follows Bernard a social outcast, Lenina a woman who follows the rules, and John the Savage who cannot understand how they can live in a world without love, and without free will.

I did not really enjoy this book; at times it was hard to understand what the author was trying to say. The tone of the novel was also really dark, and the book ends in a very disturbing way.

I would not really recommend this book based on my preferences - the plot did not really interest me.
