Brave New World

Title:
Rating:
2 out of 5 stars

It worries me that so many people rave about this book, but it didn't work for me…

Oh, don't get me wrong, Huxley clearly has an important message in mind and has constructed a narrative world as an allegory in order to communicate it to his reader. It's just that in this situation the story just doesn't work.

For me, it left too many unanswered questions and the style reminded me of the naive approach of science fiction writers such as Asimov and Clarke who came up with a neat idea and then attempted to hang a story off it, the problem being that the idea kept getting in the way.

To me Brave New World came across as cliched and contrived; better, in my opinion, that the author had put down his fears in the form of a straight–forward article and published it so that his argument had the opportunity of a clear exposition rather than having to be deconstructed from plot device and metaphor which just kept getting in the way.
