Brave New World
Required reading by many schools throughout the country, "Brave New World" is a brilliant work of fiction, as readable and pertinent today as it was over 65 years ago. Huxley's tone of semi-serious alarm and focus on specific philosophical and ethical controversies has remained amazingly contemporary -- indeed, many would argue that the future he portrayed is right here in our own society. As read by British actor Michael York, this unabridged audio edition of the book is both timely and absolutely captivating.
