In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, there is an all new fascinating and compelling view that allows the readers to have a whole new and imaginary insight on Huxley’s world. Throughout the course of the book, I as the reader, was astonished and amazed at how Huxley pictures the world in the future with new and overbearing technology and thoughts. Just a few of the outrageous new advances in technology seen in this book are hypnopaedia, soma, etc. The characters in this book work towards trying to be their own individuals in a community where they have multiple clones and everyone thinks the same.

I think though as the days and years go on, that our world might one day in the future become something like that of this story. This book was an eye opener and really makes readers think about how the world could be. In some respects, this really makes me thankful for the world I live in and being able to have a family and being able to be a unique individual.
