Book Review: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Well, I gave this one a go. I enjoyed the concept but the way the author treated the overarching theme ended up drowning in dialog.
I don’t fault the author for this. It was pretty common to the time it was written to use didactic dialog to convey big chunks of information. So he was right in line with his times. I just wasn’t into reading this kind of book at this time.
I might return to it later and read the entire thing because I found the way he handled the narrative quite compelling. He was a brilliant writer, and is worth the effort. Just not this month!
3 stars.

      What a relief! I was worried about getting blasted for not really enjoying this particular book. It’s so well loved that it was hard to post anything negative. But I have to speak my truth, knowing that others will speak their own truth. Thank you for the comment!
