Brave New World

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Aldous Huxley

Narrated By: Michael York

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2008

Duration: 7 hours 59 minutes

Summary:

Originally published in 1932, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, antiaging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media-has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 AF (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.
A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, Brave New World is both a warning to be heeded and thought-provoking yet satisfying entertainment.

    This was a very good book. Brought about some very interesting thoughts and questions about humanity. Though the narrator is good... I would NOT suggest listening to this in the car. He gets very dynamic, very quiet followed by very loud. Probably great to listen to in the home. But, driving down the highway I was constantly changing the volume.

    So, so, a bit of a disappointment, I have read better classics. Did like some literary lines like everyone belongs to everyone else’. You can find parallels in this book to society today but slow moving. Not an easy read/listen.

    Loved it! The very beginning is a bit dry and "sciency", but it picks up quickly and soon you'll want to cancel all your plans for the next 7 hours!

  • Gilbert Sanchez

    Did not enjoy this book at all. Might of been the narration but it was a ridiculous story and I have no idea why this is a classic literature must read. Narration done by Michael York is the worst that I have heard ever on a audiobook. Would not recommend this audiobook to anyone who is listening to it in traffic as I do. Unless you want to be annoyed even further!

    Maybe it's a classic and my opinion doesn't matter. But wow, this book was booooring.
