Ó Brave New World À Download by Ø Aldous Huxley Brave New World Is A Dystopian Novel Written In By English Author Aldous Huxley, And Published In Largely Set In A Futuristic World State Of Genetically Modified Citizens And An Intelligence Based Social Hierarchy, The Novel Anticipates Huge Scientific Developments In Reproductive Technology, Sleep Learning, Psychological Manipulation, And Classical Conditioning That Are Combined To Make A Utopian Society That Goes Challenged Only By A Single Outsider Wow, the anger over this rating My first post for this book was a quote and a gif of Dean from Supernatural rolling his eyes and passing out And people were pissed How dare I Lol I m honestly just so tired of all the dumb comments demanding that I all caps ELABORATE It s been going on for SIX YEARS now So I will This is still one of the most boring emotionless books I have ever read It seemed like a natural choice after I loved Orwell and Atwood but, my god, Huxley is a dry, dull writer Another reviewer called this book a sleeping pill and that is a fantastic description After all the hullabaloo with my original post, I borrowed Brave New World from my local library with the intention of reading it again to give a detailed review for those freaking out in the comments And I returned it after suffering Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World in 1932 That s almost eighty years ago, but the book reads like it could have been written yesterday especially interesting to me was how Huxley was able to predict the future of both genetic engineering and the action blockbuster Damn I think I liked this one better than 1984, the book traditionally considered to be this one s counterpart Not really sure why this is, but it s probably because this one has a clearer outsider character the Savage who can view the world Huxley created through his separate perspective In this light, I will give the last word to Neil Postman, who discussed the differences between Orwell and Huxley s views of the future What Orwell feared were those who would ban books What Huxley feared was that there would be no re remember that last semester of english class, senior year, where every class seemed painfully long and excrutiatingly pointless when everybody sat around secretly thinking of cute and witty things to put in other people s yearbooks when the teachers realized we were already braindead from filling out three dozen student loan applications and college housing forms that s when honors english started getting a little lazy not that i minded everybody got a book list then everybody got split up into groups you were responsible for reading all the books on your own, but one in particular was chosen for your group to present at the end of the semester you know as a refresher for the rest of the class because of course EVERYONE was gonna read EVERY book.
i can t remember what i did instead of reading Brave New World , but it was probably fun and involved copious amounts of sweet tea As a teenager I went through a period of reading a vast number of distopian novels probably all the teenage angst This is the one that has continued to haunt me however, long after the my youthful cynicism has died it s death It s basically a book about the utopian ideal everyone s happy, everyone has what they want and EVERYTHING is based on logical principles However, there is something very rotten at the heart It s about how what we want isn t always what we should get It looks at how state sponsered happiness can entirely miss the point Perhaps, most importantly, it makes the case for individual freedom rather than authoritarian diktat It should be read hand in hand with Mill s Utilitarianism to get a good idea of the philosophy that inspired it.
Incidentally, I gave this book to my boyfriend as a present for his 18th b But I don t want comfort I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness I want sinThese are words uttered in the face of tyranny and complete oppression, though they are very rare words to be spoken or even thought of in this world because every human passion and sense of creativity is repressed and eradicated through a long and complex process of conditioning.
And that s what makes this novel so powerful it s not unbelievable Like Orwell s 1984 and Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale,there s just enough truth within Brave New World for it to be real It s a cruel mirroring of our own existence, should we follow a certain path too strongly And that s the wonder of speculative fiction, though unlike the other two books, there s no violen I am I, and I wish I weren t.

I have to apologize for this review The concept of this book was so outlandish that I think it made my mind wander, and you may find some odd random thoughts scattered in it Anyhow, this book was so silly and unrealistic Like any of this could happen In the far future the babies are genetically This set the stage about what a dystopian story should be or not be But I don t want comfort I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness I want sin First published in 1932, this is timeless and is as relevant today as when it was first written Sixteen years before Orwell s 1984 but eleven years after We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, this is a high water mark for the genre, many of its themes could be told today Truth be said, this could be published today and would be just as good, it rises to the challenge and then towers above it If one s different, one s bound to be lonely Everyday life makes me think of this book all the time Huxley does than describe a bleak and cynical post apocalyptic or dystopian world, he looks a dystopian resident in the eye and puts before him a mirror to flesh out what is real and unreal Further, Huxley has turned th
