"Brave New World" Book Report By Aldous Huxley

523 words - 3 pages

1. When first reading this science fiction novel, I realized that the setting was in a very unique society. Everything was scientific and modern, with an unusual way of life. The reader becomes aware of the unique society when the author says, "... opening an insulated door he showed them the racks upon racks of numbered test tubes."2. Lenina confirms with Bernard that she would like to go on a trip with him to The Savage Reservation. There, they meet John, The Savage. He tells his story to Bernard, and it turns out that he is the illegitimate son of the Director and Linda, a woman who disappeared twenty-five years ago. Bernard invites ...view middle of the document...

For example, he wasn't like all of the other men because he viewed sex in a more old-fashioned way. He was more reluctant to be with a girl just for the heck of it. I disliked Pope` because he was the Indian lover of John's mother who left her to be sick. He seemed to have no kindness in his heart.4. The overall mood of this work was somewhat depressing. Nobody in the society had freedoms to do as they pleased. The plot itself didn't flow very easily, mainly because there were many technical terms included in the story. Since the story was based on a totally unfamiliar way of life, it made it hard to follow. Everything functioned differently, and therefore the storyline became complicated.5. As I read the story, I realized that what was going on in their world could potentially happen in the future. As religion and freedoms are gradually taken away, people don't realize what's going on, and things can change. Since the government had total control of what everyone did and how they did it, people didn't realize that things were once different. When one man said, "All men are physico-chemically equal," it goes to show how everyone was brainwashed and trained to believe certain ideas as truths. I would recommend this book because it sneds a good message as to what could happen to the world. Yes, it's a long shot, but it is an effective eye-opener. It was at some points difficult to follow, but overall a good read.
