    In the story, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, the reader is exposed to a new world completely different from our own. Throughout the book we follow several characters, each with their own opinions on the society they live in. Strange ideas are excellently expressed through Mr. Huxely’s writings although at parts, the reader is left slightly confused. Some of his ideas were to throw the entire society into a strict caste system, babies created through the injection of embryos, and then pre-programming them to look and think a certain way, and ideas of a family being utterly disgusting. Personally I believed this book to be extremely strange yet captivating. I thought Mr. Huxely’s ideas that where expressed in Brave New World completely went against everything I’ve been taught yet, was still interesting to see someone else’s views on the world and how society could change into the new world.

    Brave New World Can Really Get You Thinking...

    Overall, I liked the book, I liked the theme - because we can all relate to the theme, somewhat. The characters of the book have a great variety, it really enhances the reading, and makes it easier to understand. Now that I think about it, I don't think Huxley could have created 'normal' characters in such a dystopia of a life. Some of the concepts of the book killed me, and I found myself looking up other summaries profusely to understand some of the: quotes, situations, and/or character responses.<BR/><BR/>I'll give this book a 4 star rating, the only reason, in my opinon, its not worthy of 5 stars is because it isn't one bit reader friendly, more of a 'manual' book to me.

    The beginning was great in terms of setting up this world but about half way through it begins a downward slide with an ending that I didn't like. Definitely prefer 1984 over this book, but it is a classic nonetheless.
