Aldous Huxley’s visionary Brave New World is one of the world’s greatest dystopian novels. In a society built on conformity, stability, and pervasive “happiness,” individuals are not born, but manufactured into one of five distinct castes—from dull-witted laborers to leaders and thinkers. Even as embryos, people are conditioned and programmed not only to accept, but to enjoy their predestined lives—or is it their slavery?
 
But what happens when a savage—a man born from an actual mother—is introduced into this perfectly ordered society?
 
Brave New World is a masterpiece of literary satire, as appropriate today, in our world of endless, shallow distractions and ubiquitous mass media, as it was when it was first published in 1932.
 
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of fiction.

    World was widely panned by critics at the time. Its vision of dystopian London was perhaps too far ahead of its time, or perhaps its subject matter was overshadowed by the worldwide depression and the rise of fascism in Germany. However, the book increasingly resonated with readers, and is now taught as one of literature’s great novels in schools and universities across the Western world. It is also one of the world’s most banned books because of the its depiction of sexual promiscuity and drug use as a tool for maintaining societal “happiness,” and for the “false” perception of its being both anti-family and anti-religion. It ranks today among the great dystopian novels, frequently compared with George Orwell’s 1984. It appears on Modern Library’s list of the 100 Best English
