Brave New World

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley What a strange future Huxley created, but definitely a thematically interesting one. I can see similarities to Veronica Roth's Divergent in the way people are conditioned to certain beliefs in order to fit a particular mold. It is also reminiscent of Delirium, a world conditioned without love or where love is treated as an illness and not an emotional response. Overall, it is not particularly excitement inducing and the writing is at times a bit heavy, however it remains an interesting social commentary.
