I picked this up as part of a "three books" offer where it was surrounded by science fiction books by John Wyndham and others, and therefore I was expecting more of a Chrome Yellow and a precursor to Brave New World and although the themes of the latter are put forward by one of the characters, the two books are completely different.
Where Brave New World describes a futuristic world state in control of everyone's lives, Crome Yellow is a study of the main character and how he perceives and reacts to the different stereo-typical strangers with whom he is thrown together in the country house setting. It's a satire, apparently, which is why it went completely over my head.
