In an alphabetically segregated, prescription drugs regulated, physiognomy-riven, future, Aldous Huxley has created the ultimate dystopian utopia.

Central to every argument against genetic engineering since it was published Brave New World is both a great and flawed book. The ideas in it are informed by pre-WWII society and its trends. Its author, later in life, came out against some of the tenets propagated by the book. Despite this, Brave New World is an important book in every sense of the word. Visionary in its approach, brave in its attempt, it asks questions which are still relevant today and to which the answers have still to be found.
