21757 As I read this I wondered what the reader in 1932 thought about this book. I think it may have been shocking and amazing. as a 2014 reader, I thought it was interesting but have read or seen on TV or movies similar ideas before.
Something that I found interesting was the use of the Television throughout the book. I didn't really hit me until the chapter where Savage was at Linda beside when she was in her soma assisted death. A television was at her beside and a tennis match was on the screen. When this book was written the Television had just been invented. People didn't really have access to televisions in 1932. So I searched the book to find out when the television was mentioned. Lenina flew a huge television factory in Chapter 4. Helmholtz worked at the Bureaux of Propaganda by Television. Every bedroom had a television and they were on from morning to night. Lenina thought the North Pole was boring because there was no television. The television helped with Soma use. I just thought that it was very interesting that the author used this new invention throughout the book.
I just think that television is currently used as propaganda. I can't watch any news channel because of this.

21757 I have one more question. Does book B have to be "Nordic Noir"?

21757 I just want to make sure I understand. The combined 2 book total has to exceed 500 pages. Each book doesn't need to exceed 500 pages. Right?

21757 The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy
I think that's a bridge, but perhaps it's a pier. What do you think?

21757 How about Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons?
I always think of Bon Bons as one item but it is two words. Maybe I'm just over thinking it.
