Aldous Huxley is the greatest 20th century writer in English. —Chicago Tribune Aldous Huxley is rightly considered a prophetic genius and one of the most important literary and philosophical voices of the 20th Century, and Brave New World is his masterpiece. From the author of The Doors of Perception, Island, and countless other works of fiction, non-fiction, philosophy, and poetry, comes this powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations. Brave New World remains absolutely relevant to this day as both a cautionary dystopian tale in the vein of the George Orwell classic 1984, and as thought-provoking, thoroughly satisfying entertainment.

3.0 Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited
Skipped the essay collection because I honestly was not that interested.

5.0 Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
I love how, as a utopian/dystopian book, this book is not only thought-provoking but also satirically funny. I enjoyed this a lot more than 1984.

4.0
I liked this book more than I thought I would. It really made me think and I don't regret that I had to read it. Because of its provocative nature, I wouldn't suggest it for anyone who isn't high-school age yet, but once there, it should definitely be read.

4.0 Il mondo nuovo - Ritorno al mondo nuovo
Il libro mi era stato consigliato da un'amica e devo dire che è davvero un bel romanzo (ed anche il "saggio" finale è ottimo). E' una versione più "gentile" di 1984, dove il futuro non è poi cupo, tetro ed asfittico come nel romanzo di Orwell. Leggetelo, e pensate al nostro mondo attuale... e vedete...
