bookshelves: sci-fi, dystopian
Read in September, 2009 — I own a copy, read count: 1

One of the most thought-provoking novels I've ever read, Brave New World provides a shocking nightmare of what happens when society becomes too indulgent in order to better control people, organize them socioeconomically (and physio/psychologically). Brave New World Revisited is even more thought-provoking, though a bit dry at times. But realizing the changes the world had seen between 1931 when Brave New World was written and 1965 when it was "revisited", then again to 2009 when I experienced it was a mind-blowing experience. I now very much want to read 1984 for comparison.
