COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Great submitted by ldupuis44 on July 9, 2011, 9:59am Amazing book. It is very engaging and interesting.

One of my favorites submitted by bradyemmett on July 19, 2011, 10:22am Brave New World has long been one of my favorite future dystopias. I find myself coming back with wonder to a world that confuses Ford and Freud. It is a fascinating and cautionary read.

Highly recommended submitted by ashflowtuff on August 18, 2011, 10:21am I think everyone should read this book. It's fascinating and frightening.

Great Concept submitted by lcannon8 on August 19, 2014, 8:52pm Huxley creates an intricate and seemingly plausible dystopian society. As a warning to the reader to evaluate the current real-world situation, Huxley poses many questions about our political and economic state in the midst of capitalism, explores many moral and spiritual questions, and challenges the reader to think for himself in the context of the world that he has created. Thought the book is lacking in substantial plot points throughout the end of the novel, the world is built so expertly and startlingly that the lack of plot-crafting is largely compensated for by the haunting ideas and questions that linger, even from the first pages.

Brave New World submitted by mrondo on June 17, 2017, 10:05pm Well that was weird...
I'm glad I finished though because the last 50 pages were the best part.

Good submitted by hahahame on July 24, 2017, 8:03pm Interesting and good story. A page turner.

A dreadful future submitted by steveiew on June 28, 2018, 4:35pm Huxley paints a frightening, yet realistic, view of the future where society is built upon a hierarchy of intelligence and science has made huge advances. While interesting to read as a commentary on society, it is not a light read. The story in and of itself isn't super compelling.
