Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World to be Adapted for Television
The book is set in a world without poverty, war or disease. In this world, humans are given mind-altering drugs, free sex and rampant consumerism are the order of the day and people no longer reproduce but are genetically engineered in “hatcheries.” Those who won’t conform are forced onto “reservations” – until one of these “savages” challenges the system, threatening the entire social order. First published in 1932, Brave New World was ranked fifth among the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th Century by Modern Library.
Brave New World was written in 1931 by Huxley and published in 1932. The story is set in London of AD 2540. An American movie adaptation was made in 1980. You can see the entire thing on YouTube.
