Brave New World von Aldous Huxley

Ich fand es viel zu schwierig zu lesen. Aber schwer zu lesen ist allein keine Qualität. Andere Bücher gehen leichter und haben trotzdem mehr zu sagen. Fazit: Nichts für mich.

A gripping BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Aldous Huxley's classic dystopian novel It's 2116, and Bernard Marx and Helmholtz Watson are token rebels in an irretrievably corrupted society where promiscuity is the norm, eugenics a respectable science, and morality turned upside down.
Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher and a prominent member of the Huxley family. He was best known for his novels including Brave New World, set in a dystopian London, and for non-fiction books, such as The Doors of Perception, which recalls experiences when taking a psychedelic drug, and a wide-ranging output of essays. He spent the later part of his life in the U.S., living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death.
Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in seven different years.
