In 1931 a world of rapid air travel, genetic engineering and a lazy, over-sexualised consumer society seemed deeply satirical. Now Aldous Huxley's vision can be read as almost prophetic. In the year 2540, humans are bred in labs to take their pre-ordained place in a carefully constructed society where everyone is content to be part of one big machine. But what happens when somebody wants more? And what if he thinks he can get it by bringing someone in from outside normal society, somebody so primitive he doesn't like going to the feelies, and has a birth mother? A parable about control and rebellion, Brave New World is a powerful masterpiece of modern fiction.
