With an introduction by Margaret Atwood and David Bradshaw
Science. Technology. Want for nothing. Maximum pleasure. Welcome to a world where society exists without war, poverty, sickness or unhappiness, where instant gratification and mass consumerism sooth the inhabitants into happy conformity. One man stands to challenge all this: Bernard Marx, alone in harbouring a longing to break free. His attempt to do so sets off a chain of events that could disrupt everything.
Is this Brave New World that Huxley imagined where we are headed, or are we already there? Take the drugs and float away through Huxley's relentless cityscape, and you might find answers to questions you didn't know you should be asking.
