Recommendation 2:

Brave New World; Aldous Huxley

This one’s a classic, which presents a version of the future that warns us to watch what we’re doing now. People are made in types to work a certain job, these types altered and mass-produced in clone batches, a la Henry Ford’s production line. Everyone takes a mood-altering drug, soma, to keep them happy, and the world has an  ‘everything in it’s place’ kind of philosophy. But, of course, not everyone is happy like they’re supposed to be… because you can’t make cookie-cutter people without someone, somewhere breaking the mold.

“A gramme is better than a damn.” – Huxley

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
