Journal Entry 1 by bluepig from Kempen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Tuesday, January 03, 2012 schreibt:
"Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow. Huxley foreshadowed many of the practices and gadgets we take for granted today--let's hope the sterility and absence of individuality he predicted aren't yet to come.

Lieber Finder/Liebe Finderin,
schön, dass du dich entschlossen hast, einen
Eintrag für das Buch zu machen! Du kannst das Buch lesen und es dann wieder frei

Und du
liebes Buch - ich hoffe wieder von dir zu hören!
