Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Brave New World  

by Aldous Huxley 

Not so much a novel as a thinly veiled sociological horoscope for humanity. Huxley is factual and dispassionate in pre-supposing the effects of scientific ‘advances’ and emerging social control mechanisms. Orwell’s ‘1984’ illustrated a society under control using force while Brave New World’s hypothisis that we will be controlled by over-pleasuring seems much more plausible.

Great book/warning.
