Interesting idea, decent execution. Definitely more of a thought piece than something you read for its literary merit

Brave New World is an astounding look at the future of society and the totally plausible situation it could find itself in - one of the scariest books I've read in years.

Necessary for anyone into Dystopian novels.

Probably good to read at least once, but it's not one of my personal favorites.

everyone should read this book!

A sobering read when you consider that this was written before the widespread use of birth control, the appearance of genetic cloning, increasing globalization in politics, omnipresent media, and the gradual (consensual) disappearance of historical, religious, and cultural literacy.

One of the scariest books I'd read up to then (I was in high school).

A great sci fi book

Great writing and a unique vision of an ugly future. I just didn't like it. Meh.

Look for Huxley's many criticisms of governments and other social institutions in this book. Many of these criticisms are just as valid today as they were almost 80 years ago when this novel was written,

Beautifully intense, with an eye opening ending!

Don't see what all the fuss is about. Plus Huxley's implied support of the world he creates is disturbing.

a great book that is fictional, but could one day happen in this fucked up world of blurred ethics and progressive technology

Fantastic piece.

While Bradbury and Orwell were writing about the danger of governmental control over lifestyle and information access, Huxley was writing of a far more terrifying future. Huxley's vision was of a world where people engage in the willful negligence of responsibility.

Such a good book. I would encourage people to give Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy a try if they are interested in Brace New World...

Definitely a favorite.

Another one of my all-time favorites.

A terrific classic that tells us about society.
