Brave New World
Reread this when my kids had to read it in school and remember why I liked it so much.

Brave New World
This is far from my favorite dystopian novel but it does have a lot of great elements in it.

Brave New World
It is undeniably prophetic how closely Huxley comes to extrapolating trends that reach into today's post-modern world.

Brave New World
Plausible, creepily plausible. But I buy most of Huxley's philosophy wholesale.

Frightening, sickening, and yet ever-so-real. It's like our world right now! ACK!

   One of the noticeable things about this novel at its conclusion is that you don't really find any fully likable characters. While most novels have a clear and defined party you should …

Back in high school though we studied the book thoroughly for external exams, it was only after getting out into the real world that we fully grasped some of what the writer was trying …

Animal Farm (1st U.S. edition)
Really good and a book that would probably be good to have a study aid with because there is so much symbolism and meaning to this allegory. There are probably even some things I missed.

I know it's a classic, but I really didn't love it. There are much better utopian-esque books out there.

Animal Farm (1st U.S. edition)
As I read this book, it started to become clear that this was not just a simple story about different animals and their lives on a seemingly flourishing farm. The plot is actually an elaborate allegory …

Okay book about the future, but honestly it was a little analytical for my taste.

I liked this dystopia much better than 1984. Huxley's writing seems much more eloquent and expressive than Orwell's. My favorite part about the book though, and something that sets it apart from 1984 …

Good book, I should probably reread it. A friend recommended it to me. It is an interesting commentary on the individual vs. the state.

Brave New World
This book is one of the classics of science fiction literature. I have to be honest, I did have some trouble understanding the ending. The ideas that Aldous Huxley came up with in 1932 are amazing. There …

Animal Farm written by George Orwell is a shocking account of a group of farm animals that start a revolution, rise against their "Master" and attempt to create a free and equal society. The …

Brave New World
In my opinion, an excellent analysis of a potential future far more insidious than that of books such as 1984. People balk at control via suffering, and cruelty much faster than society's attempts at …

This is a really good book. I like how different it is, and it really is an eye-opener. George Orwell was an amazing writer.

Another excellent example of a negative utopia which generally is named in the same breath as Orwell's 1984...but there is very little in common beyond that.      The book opens …

" All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others". What a great line. I think the brilliance of this novel is it shows you the heart of communism: how simple and tricky it is. Another …
