3/5 Very similar to Orwell’s style in being a prophetic view of the future. It is about an imagined world if we were to be determined by our animal desires addressing the flaws of ideology. The premise is that each and every child of the society is through IVF and conditioned to be a part of each social group.
As a philosophical novel this is great, Huxley paints a wonderfully doomed picture of mankind, as everyone has to conform. It is about the free minds in a fixed society, and does make you question your own surroundings.
Huxley however, is obviously a philosopher, and his writing can tend to be a little shallow. The most important thing about his style is that it does serve his purpose and explain his point, retaining the book’s meaning and prowess. A good book if you fancy a good ponder and a discussion afterwards, but not really for a bit of light entertainment.
