Reviews

  • "The most prophetic book of the 20th century... If you have time for just one book, this would be my top choice."

    Yuval Noah Harari
  • "It is impossible to read Brave New World without being impressed by Huxley's eerie glimpses into the present"

    New Statesman
  • "The 20th century could be seen as a race between two versions of man-made hell - the jackbooted state totalitarianism of Orwell's Nineteen Eight-Four, and the hedonistic ersatz paradise of Brave New World, where absolutely everything is a consumer good and human beings are engineered to be happy"

    Margaret Atwood
  • "Aldous Huxley was uncannily prophetic, a more astute guide to the future than any other 20th century novelist ... Nineteen Eighty-Four has never really arrived, but Brave New World is around us everywhere"

    J G Ballard
  • "A brilliant tour de force, Brave New World may be read as a grave warning of the pitfalls that await uncontrolled scientific advance. Full of barbed wit and malice-spiked frankness. Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling"
