Personal Response Brave New World

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley tells the story of a dystopian futuristic society and how many weird things that we dont have in our society like using drugs to be happy, reproductive technology, human cultives, and more, are completely normal things in their day to day lifes. At the start I was really confused, I didnt know what was going on or where it was going, but after a while I got the hang of it. Some thing that really got me thinking is how they outcast others just because of their different preferences, for example Bernard didnt like always having sex with anyone or taking soma at the start of the series, and people didnt like him, we do the same thing in todays society, even if we dont notice it, Brave New World is kinda similar to our own world in different ways. Overall this book really gets you thinking of where you are right now, living in the “perfect society” we are in today, isnt much that different from the one mentioned in the book.
