Book Review: Brave New World

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley: again, one of those books everyone is just supposed to read at some point in life. More political commentary, this time on the theme of a Utopian World State. Like any form of Utopia, however, it’s not quite as perfect as it seems; babies are born in laboratories and deliberately conditioned; there is no such thing as family; sex is open to everyone, with everyone. Bernard Marx, a scientist and would-be revolutionary, is unhappy with the state of affairs and sets about quietly trying to change things. But will he succeed?

Definitely worth a read.
