Aldous Huxley’s 1932 dystopian classic Brave New World predicts – with eerie clarity – a terrifying vision of the future, which feels ever closer to our new reality.
'The best science fiction book ever, definitely the most prescient...' Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens
‘A masterpiece of speculation... As vibrant, fresh, and somehow shocking as it was when I first read it’ Margaret Atwood
Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...
Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.
'What Aldous Huxley presented as fiction with the human hatcheries of Brave New World has become fact. The consequences are profound and…deeply disturbing' John Humphries, Sunday Times
‘A grave warning... Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling' Observer
**One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**
