really liked it

Strange, depressing tale. At this point, it is simulaneously current and anachronistic. I enjoyed reading it. The portrayal of a future civilization obsessed with sex -- wait, that's today. Anyway, I found the ending hard to take. I don't know how I missed reading this earlier. It seemed to be on everyone's reading list for some class in high school or college, but I missed it somehow. It's worth reading now just to see what someone envisioned as the future for our shallow, consumer based society. If it played out as Huxley imagined, it would be terrible indeed.
