Review by Águeda Fernández

huxley2.jpgBRAVE NEW WORLD
Aldous Huxley
(1932)

Future…how can this word make our life so unpredictable?
Despite the fact that this book was written in 1932 and it is thought not to be a scientific prophecy, the chemically-driven happiness that Huxley imagined is not so different from our life-style nowadays. Adolf Huxley didn’t want to write a piece of ill-concieved futurology, he was only trying to write an ironic view of future. Sarcasm encompasses each chapter so that his book is not very thick but it definitely has an intense philosophycal flavour. “Brave new world” is an extremely well-written novel that will make you think about the way we’re threating our appalled planet.
