I bought this after reading and enjoying the better known Brave New World. It's presented in an unusual way, based on someone finding a script which then forms the basis of the book. As with BNW, it has a futuristic setting, about some scientists travelling to a post nuclear city and what they find. For me, it didn't have the charm of BNW. It's quite short, and I think I may have enjoyed more had AH fleshed it out a bit more.
