Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow. Huxley foreshadowed many of the practices and gadgets we take for granted today--let's hope the sterility and absence of individuality he predicted aren't yet to come. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars The $1.49 Kindle Book Is NOT The Actual Book
By Stinky Minky on October 12, 2017
I bought the Kindle edition for $1.49 (the one with eggs on the cover) and it is NOT the actual, original version; it is a watered-down, summary of sorts of the actual book. It basically takes the original version, changes the prose and wording to make it more "readable" and understandable in more modern language, I suppose. If that's what you're looking for, then I recommend this edition but if you're looking for the original, you'll need to spend a little more money to download the original with the man on the front cover. Maybe I missed some kind of disclosure but I don't remember seeing anything saying this was a different version. Even though I'm only out $1 and some change, it's still kind of disappointing that I wasted it on a book that's seemingly advertised as the original. If they'll sell a book that's not the original for $1.49, I wonder if they'll try to sell one that's not the original for $10 or $15? If you didn't know what you're looking for and didn't know this wasn't the original, you'd just think you got a heck of a deal on a classic when, in reality, you were ripped off. I don't typically give bad reviews and this review does not reflect the content of Brave New World but rather that of the actual sale/this particular version of the book. You can see on the pictures I've attached the differences in the wording from the original to the version I purchased.

Quite depressing but so timely accurate. Everyone should read it - together with 1984 - G. Orwell.
