      This book published in the year 1932 is a critique that the author, Aldous Huxley, wrote about the advance of science in the time when he was living. Summarizing, the story happens in a future London, with really advanced science, where humans aren’t born the traditional way anymore, but are mass produced thanks to a new

      technology created.

      People live in a ‘happy’ world, where there are not emotions that go out of what’s stablished.

      If they feel some alteration in their emotions, they’re drugged so they go on on their ‘happy’ state.

      Then a man, John Savage, born from a human womb, thinks different, and he has a conflict with this ...


      • ‘happy’ society, that is mainly what the story will talk about.

        This book is really well written, and the characters in my opinion are well developed and credible.

        The descriptions done, like for example of the human production, or drugging procedures are a great work done by the author.

        It’s a really sharp critique of the society

        of his time, and even if it was written long ago, it can make you think about the current society too.

        The view of the author is very discouraging, though, but it’s true that progress wrongly used might lead us to a dark society like the one pictured in the book.

        I recommend this book for people who like thinking.
