A brave new world

This outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming and media - has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

  • "Written in 1931, Aldous Huxley presents an insightful and arguably clairvoyant narrative about the future of society. Set primarily in London in 2540, Bernard Marx undergoes an existential crisis, tired of this dystopic world state where everyone consumes drugs for depression, babies are born in laboratories, and everyone's happiness is controlled and confined."@en

  • "A futuristic account of a world comprising test-tube babies conditioned to accept their pre-destined caste in a society where morality, art, love and parenthood no longer exist."
  • "Huxley's terrifying vision of a controlled and emotionless future "Utopian" society is truly startling in its prediction of modern scientific and cultural phenomena, including test-tube babies and rampant drug abuse."

  • "Set in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford - the god of automation), this is a satire on the world's scientific and social developments. In this age, the inhabitants are decanted from bottles and then conditioned to accept their predestined castes in society. This is the ideal world of the future. In laboratories genetic science has brought reproduction to perfection. Stratified society ensure stability. But in the Central London Conditioning Centre, Bernard Max is unhappy and longs to break free."@en
  • "Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media-has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our twenty-first century existence? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford the Deity). Huxley paints a startling and hallucinatory picture of a civilisation that imagines itself free, but that in reality is mindlessly (and happily) captive to the ruling class."
  • ""Far in the future, the World Controllers have finally created the ideal society. In laboratories world-wide, genetic science has brought the human race to perfection. Man is bred and educated to be blissfully content with a pre-destined world. But in the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre, Bernard Marx is unhappy. Bernard has an ill-defined longing to be free ..."--Container."

  • ""Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow."@en
