Brave New World

'The best science fiction book ever, definitely the most prescient... Looking at our present trajectory we are on the way to Brave New World' Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens and Homo Deus

‘A masterpiece of speculation... As vibrant, fresh, and somehow shocking as it was when I first read it’ Margaret Atwood

A grave warning... Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling' Observer

'What Aldous Huxley presented as fiction with the human hatcheries of Brave New World has become fact. The consequences are profound and, if we don't get it right, deeply disturbing' John Humphries, Sunday Times

WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY MARGARET ATWOOD AND DAVID BRADSHAW

Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...

Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Rezension

„Scary, yet compelling...“

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

Where do I start. Ever since Huxley published it in 1931, Brave New World has been one of the most well-known and popular Dystopian novels ever written. And it's really not hard to see why: from the very first page, right until the very last, I just couldn't stop reading, and thinking about what I had just read. After almost 85 it seems Where do I start. Ever since Huxley published it in 1931, Brave New World has been one of the most well-known and popular Dystopian novels ever written.
