Never Gets Old

  • Oct 4, 2002

I first read this book about 30 years ago and it is just as fresh and relevent today as it was back then. It involves a "perfect" society where people are conditioned at birth to accept the station they are assigned in life. Sexual inhabitions do not exist. As a result all people are happy and crime is virtually unheard of. This "perfect" society is threatened by a group of "savages" who want to overturn society and bring things back to the way they were before. Compelling reading. This was probably the inspiration for the film "Demolition Man."
