Brave New World - Aldous Huxley This book is frighteningly on target and forces you to take a long hard look at the current state of the world. It's incredible when you realize it was written in the 1930's! The media, the easy access to pain-numbing drugs, the complete self-centeredness and selfishness of many people makes many of the author's ideas quite plausible.

The writing style, however, doesn't lend itself to an easy reading experience. Disk 2, in particular, is difficult to comprehend as the author switches back and forth between what appears to be three different conversations. If I had read this in print I probably would've given up at that point. Things went much more smoothly reading-wise after "the savage" and Linda were brought back to utopia.

Still it was a chilling, eye-opening and fascinating read.
