    (1874)

    When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

    Cloning, feel-good drugs, anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media: has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 A.F. (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

    Jefferson says: "“Oh, Ford, Ford Ford, I Wish I Had My Soma!”"

    Story

    Michael York does a fantastic job narrating this story which delves deep into a world that is both not far from our own yet in stark contrast to most of what we hold dear. While in the beginning the story can feel a little confusing because they throw you directly into the world with little introduction. It immediately engrosses you as you realize the weight and meaning behind what is being explained. As the story continues, your mind begs for the characters to break free and in desperation you hope that not all is lost in this drug-fueled, brainwashed, listless world. Are you a savage or a citizen? Is this brave new world all you thought, hoped, and believed it would be?
