A Bespectacled Girl's Blog

Hi I am a college student that reads and sews in her free time. I enjoy reading fantasy, Science fiction, and the occasional Memoir. I own a Nook and if you want to share lend me books then hit me up with a message
Brave New World - Aldous Huxley This was first published in 1932.

I don't know enough about science to separate truth from imagination. But when I learn more about cloning and the possibilities of DNA manipulation I will read this again.

Brave New World... Brave New World...
It reminds me of the The Lottery by Shirley Jackson.

Society and the implications of Nature v. Nurture, that is what this book seemed to revolve around to me. The constant satisfaction of the body and the consumption of mind numbing soma. The oxymoron of Mr.Savage being the most enlightened brought a smile to my lips.

We are all a little savage.
