Laura (goatgrl48) | 6 comments I'm in, and it's my first time reading this book. I've been interested in reading it for a while. My husband read it in high school, and remembered that it sparked a lot of discussion for their English class.


message 4: by Renee (new)

Renee (elenarenee) I am going to be reading this one. I have time issues right now. I will be joining late.

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 976 comments I read it so long ago, all I know is from popular culture. It'll be at least a week before I can make time, though.

Trisha | 430 comments I haven’t read this before, so hope to read it with the group this month.


message 9: by Amélie (new)

Amélie F. (_prinnie) Can’t wait to start reading it, it’s been sleeping in my Kindle forever.

Just need to get through my finals first...


message 10: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (tksharkbait) Brave New World is my FAVORITE book of all time! I've read it at least 15+ times starting about 20 years ago. I will gladly be reading it again for this month. I actually end up reading it at least once a year now anyway.

Tried to read this various times in the past, but feeling more dedicated and motivated as it's this month's read. I have expectations due to cultural relevance and connections to other themes that are important, so let's see how it goes!

Catka | 18 comments I am just listening to it and wondering how on earth did I discovered it only now.


message 13: by Sofi (new)

Sofi Michael | 4 comments I’m so excited to read this book!! From what I’ve gathered, it seems pretty relevant in today’s political climate. Hopefully will serve as some insight into our own society right now!!

I couldn't agree more! It's so incredible to think that Huxley wrote this nearly 100 years ago, and yet it is so modern and relevant today.

Laura H (laurah30) | 522 comments I am listening to this book as it is one that really suits the name of this group. Never read it in high school so I am working through it now.


message 16: by Laura (new)

Laura (lfergu11) | 86 comments Absolutely love this book and am excited to be rereading it this month.

Alannah | 1 comments I love this book :) It's my personal favourite classic and excited to read it, I am also reading Kafka too this month (my own goal).


message 19: by Kim (new)

Kim WV | 96 comments I'm getting to this late like a few other members are as well. Listening to audio version read by Michael York. But I'm having a hard time keeping focused on it (probably me). :/ Hard time following plot.


message 20: by Sue (new)

Sue I'm jumping in a little late. I'm about 10% of the way through the book - I can't wait to see where this goes!

Looking forward to joining the Spoilers discussion soon.
