Summary:

On the 75th anniversary of its publication, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging 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 A. F. (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

    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.

    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!
