    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

  • Brave New World

    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!”"
    "Its pretty good"

    Would you listen to Brave New World again? Why?

    I would listen to the book again if I had to. I actually got the book for a school assignment and I didn't want to read it so I got it on audible. Its a good book but its very descriptive, if you can get passed that the book really isn't that long and is very interesting...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brave New World?

    The director showing the student how babies weren't conceived and that 96 babies (twins) were born from 1 egg to be put to work in factories.


    Did Michael York do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes but his accent is annoying after a while...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    Good luck to all students who have to read and write about this for school :)
