Publisher's Summary

When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.On the 75th anniversary of its publication, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media: has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

Worth revisiting

I'm so pleased I listened to this again as an adult. Mr Huxley was clearly on the money in his imaginings of humans. Brilliant! And sad. But mostly brilliant!

Great reading of a modern classic

Michael York delivers a wonderful performance, he gives a great depth to all the different characters. I always found Brave New World a bit of a slog but this rendition was a delight.
