not Huxley's best by any means but a telling story of upper-class dillatanttes and those who try to find something beyond. A sentimentalist adds incredible perspective to an otherwise dull story, however I must say the last chapter is possibly Huxley's most prolific writing and is a metaphor for everything he ended up saying in not-so-metaphorical ways later in his life.
