Brave New WorldDownloadable Audiobook - 2008 | Unabridged
Set far in the future, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World depicts a world where "Controllers" have achieved what they believe to be the ideal society. Through scientific and genetic breakthroughs the human race has been brought to perfection: humans have pre-assigned roles in society, and everyone happily fulfills their purpose. Bernard Marx, however, is different. He is disgusted by the predestined behaviour of his peers and has a strong desire to break free from social pressures, leading him to set off on a journey to visit one of the few remaining Savage Reservations--places where the old, flawed, and imperfect life still continues.
