Title Profile & Character Information

Brave New World

Annotation

Aldous Huxley's tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a "utopian" future#8212where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment.
