Brave New World is a novel written by Aldous Huxley, which was published in 1932. The novel describes the developments in reproductive technology and sleep-learning that are intended to change society. The book is seen as futuristic and antiutopian. The motto of the book is "Community, Identity, Stability". The future life is seen like the one without violence everyone has everything. However, the author believes that something goes wrong. Huxley presumes that many traditions of our society that are taken for granted now were presupposed. The book is pretty complicated and philosophical and tough for understanding but it is definitely recommended for all readers who are questioning the life and the future.
