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.

Charley Girl (charleygirl9) | 678 comments Does this remind anyone of a Clockwork Orange? The continuous speeches about being a certain way?

If it is torn throw it away! Where are the dumps, that's what I want to know.

I've never read Clockwork Orange but now I'm thinking I should. I was just thinking while reading this how many classics I never had to read in school and now really need to.

I'd read it if I were you. Two stars is that it is ok. I really think that it is because I've just read too many dystopia books lately.
