Brave New World

Perfection Learning Pre Bind, 2006 - Fiction - 259 pages
250 Reviews
Aldous Huxley's tour de force, "Brave New World" is a darkly satiric vision of a "utopian" future where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment.
