A stunning gift edition of the classic dystopian masterpiece, Brave New World; part of the Vintage Dystopia hardback gift edition set, also featuring The Handmaid's Tale and Nineteen Eighty-Four

Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent, harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...

Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Reviews

It is impossible to read Brave New World without being impressed by Huxley's eerie glimpses into the present

New Statesman

The 20th century could be seen as a race between two versions of man-made hell - the jackbooted state totalitarianism of Orwell's Nineteen Eight-Four, and the hedonistic ersatz paradise of Brave New World, where absolutely everything is a consumer good and human beings are engineered to be happy

Margaret Atwood
