Parman Teen Book Review: “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley

brave new worldBrave New World reminded me of the world in Fahrenheit 451, except it was infinitely worse. In a future governed by dictator-like “fordships,” people are divided into castes with no religion, love, or freedom whatsoever as they are taught from birth that “everyone belongs to everyone.” The story follows Bernard Marx – who doesn’t fit in because he questions the ways of society and exhibits too much individualism  as he takes a shallow but sweet young woman, Lenina, to Indian reservations of the West. Here, they meet people who will change both of their lives forever. All in all, Brave New World is a captivating novel that fostered my love for classic science fiction. The book really prompted me to reflect on our values and reasoning as human beings, and it is definitely a novel that everyone should read (or reread) soon. Huxley is a brilliant writer, and the world he creates in this novel manages to teach, repulse, and disgust. Like my reviews? Check out my blog at Fantastic Books and where to find them
