Default Brave New World by Aldous Huxley



This was apparently one of the books in John's large library of books. It's a literary classic and quote an astonishing read about the "future" and the present. I think it's incredible and resonates deeply with the reality.

A synopsis:

Quote:
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a classic science fiction work that continues to be a significant warning to our society today. Tony Britton, the reader, does an excellent job of portraying clinical detachment as the true nature of the human incubators is revealed. The tone lightens during the vacation to the wilderness and the contrast is even more striking. Each character is given a separate personality by Britton's voices. As the story moves from clinical detachment to the human interest of Bernard, the nonconformist, and John, the "Savage," listeners are drawn more deeply into the plot. Finally, the reasoned tones of the Controller explain away all of John's arguments against the civilization, leading to John's death as he cannot reconcile his beliefs to theirs.
You can buy this book on Amazon for an assortment of prices and conditions.
