Yep, I love that one. I'd rather be the savage. I'd say were pretty much there now. IT's almost illegal to be unhappy. If you are they stuff you full of pills, fire you from your job, push you out of the world and put you somewhere. Well, you can see I'm in a great mood.

Ditto. I preferred 1984, myself, if we're discussing that kind of book, but BNW is well up there on great books I've read. I'd be interested to read Aldous Huxley's paper on his journey inside a wrinkle in his pants that he wrote while on mescaline.

I loathed Brave New World. Just something about the style and the prose itself, I had a miserable time reading it and I should have given up on it instead of struggling to finish it.
