Reviews

  • Concise, evocative, wise and, above all, humane, The Doors of Perception is a masterpiece

    Sunday Times
  • There is nothing the pen of Huxley touches which it does not illuminate, and as the record of a highly civilised, brilliantly articulate man under the influence of an astonishing drug, The Doors of Perception is a tour de force

    Daily Telegraph
  • You can look at Aldous Huxley and draw parallels with the Beatles: Crome Yellow and Those Barren Leaves were his breakthrough Merseybeat books, Point Counter Point was his 'Revolver', with The Doors of Perception his full-blown Sergeant Pepper trip. Like the Beatles, Huxley had so many ideas in his head that it was natural he would want to expand and experiment. What drugs provided for them both was not escape, but reevaluation

    The Times
  • The Doors of Perception is a poignant book, partly because it reveals the human frailties and yearnings of a very cerebral writer
