About the Author

ALDOUS HUXLEY (18941963) was an English writer who spent the latter part of his life in the United States. Though best known for Brave New World, he also wrote countless works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and essays. A humanist, pacifist and satirist, he wrote novels and other works that functioned as critiques of social norms and ideals. Aldous Huxley is often considered a leader of modern thought and one of the most important literary and philosophical voices of the 20th century.

Halfway through this satire I realized it was futile to view it as anything but entertainment. Huxley's wallowing in trifle and snobbery bowled him over. It is unfortunate that this wasn't just one novel in a string of many depicting the same characters, because a series of novels would have made for an elevated soap opera. I would surely have gone through the whole series with gusto.

the novels Mr. Huxley wrote in the 40's take a different tone than the essays he was writing at the time. it is clear that fiction escapes him, although his flair for writing still shows. 'TIme must have a stop' is a strange combo between auto-biography and satire. It is not an exciting book like many of his others, often times I found myself losing attention. but not every novel an author writes can be great, although Aldous comes close. This one is only for hardccccore Huxley addicts, and those with a more analytical approach.
