Brave New World Audiobook by Aldous Huxley

Gilbert Sanchez Did not enjoy this book at all. Might of been the narration but it was a ridiculous story and I have no idea why this is a classic literature must read. Narration done by Michael York is the worst that I have heard ever on a audiobook. Would not recommend this audiobook to anyone who is listening to it in traffic as I do.

Unless you want to be annoyed even further! Jamin Mahoney Maybe it's a classic and my opinion doesn't matter. Enthralling radio dramatisations of eight of Charles Dickens' much-loved novels.

Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned authors of all time, and this second digital volume of the dramatised canon of his work includes eight of his classic novels. This collection includes the epic masterpiece David Copperfield , described by Dickens as his 'favourite child'; suspenseful mystery Bleak House ; Dickens' most openly political novel, Hard Times ; and Little Dorrit. It's , and Bernard Marx and Helmholtz Watson are token rebels in an irretrievably corrupted society where promiscuity is the norm, eugenics a respectable science, and morality turned upside down.

There is no poverty, crime or sickness - but no creativity, art or culture either. Human beings are merely docile citizens: Into this sterile society comes an outsider, John - a man born into squalor and suffering, but raised on The Complete Works of William Shakespeare , a book which has shaped his entire life. When he discovers that treasured ideals such as love mean nothing in this 'brave new world', where romance is ridiculous, marriage shocking and parenthood shameful, John's world is shattered - and his reaction will show Bernard and Helmholtz what rebellion really means Based on Aldous Huxley's masterpiece, widely considered one of the greatest novels of all time, this chilling dramatisation set in a futuristic totalitarian society stars Jonathan Coy, Justin Salinger, Milton Lopes and Anton Lesser.

Running time: A must read. It is my hope that everyone reads this book, so this future can be avoided. I usually love a BBC dramatisation, but this one cut out too much in order to come in under time, and lost a lot of the internal struggle of the characters. I enjoyed the performances, but would have preferred the unabridged story. Everybody belongs to everybody His description of the future on human relationships are surprisingly accurate. A well good read from the cast.

BBC has taken some liberties with this piece. This was a great introduction to Brave New World. Makes listening a pleasure and more of an experience rather than the fullness of reading the entire book. Enjoyed it very much. Amazing story, and great dramatization. I did not know what had affected society in this way.

From Krypton to the sex clubs in Vegas. I am besides myself. An excellent production of a classic.

Characters were deep and meaningful. I really enjoyed this, and will listen again for sure. Really enjoyed radio production. A nice break from single narrator reading the original text. One of my favorite books with a refreshing interpretation of scenes and characters different from my own.

The telling of Brave New World seemed to lose a little in the Radio 4 dramatisation. I cannot explain why I was thinking more about the houses in leafy Surrey where this would be heard rather than than the morality tale and commentary on a modern society. Suffice to say the acting was good but for me too staged.

I followed the story but was not swept up in it. Perhaps in hindsight a reading of the book would have been better. I have read the book and watched the old Hollywood movie and both put this piece of garbage to shame.

Once again modern update ruins the plot. Such a difficult book to condense and dramatise but this is a very good radio play adaption. Aldous Huxley.

Narrated by: People who bought this also bought Raymond Chandler: Helmholtz, successful, charming, attractive, is drawn to Bernard as a confidant: he can talk to Bernard about his desire to write poetry. Bernard likes Helmholtz because, unlike anyone else, Helmholtz likes Bernard. He is also, Bernard realizes, everything Bernard will never be. Bernard, desperately wanting Lenina's attentions, tries to impress her by taking her on holiday to a Savage Reservation.

The reservation, located in New Mexico, consists of a community named Malpais. From afar, Lenina thinks it will be exciting.

In person, she finds the aged, toothless natives who mend their clothes rather than throw them away repugnant, and the situation is made worse when she discovers that she has left her soma tablets at the resort hotel. Bernard is fascinated, although he realizes his seduction plans have failed. In typical tourist fashion, Bernard and Lenina watch what at first appears to be a quaint native ceremony. The village folk, whose culture resembles that of the Pueblo peoples such as the Hopi and Zuni, begin by singing, but the ritual quickly becomes a passion play where a village boy is whipped to unconsciousness.

Soon after, the couple encounters Linda, a woman formerly of The World State who has been living in Malpais since she came on a trip and became separated from her group and her date, whom she refers to as "Tomakin", but who is revealed to be Bernard's boss, Thomas.

She became pregnant because she mistimed her "Malthusian Drill" and there were no facilities for an abortion.

Linda gave birth to a son, John later referred to as John the Savage who is now eighteen. Through conversations with Linda and John, we learn that their life has been hard. For eighteen years, they have been treated as outsiders; the natives hate Linda for sleeping with all the men of the village, as she was conditioned to do and John was mistreated for his mother's actions.

John's one joy was that his mother had taught him to read although he only had two books: a scientific manual from his mother's job and a collection of the works of Shakespeare a work banned in The World State.

John has been denied the religious rituals of the village, although he has watched them and even has had some of his own religious experiences in the desert.

Old, weathered and tired, Linda wants to return to her familiar world in London; she is tired of a life without soma. John wants to see the "brave new world" his mother has told him so much about.

Bernard wants to take them back as revenge against Thomas, who threatened to reassign Bernard to Iceland as punishment for Bernard's antisocial beliefs. Bernard arranges permission for Linda and John to leave the reservation. Upon his return to London, Bernard is confronted by Thomas, the Director of the Hatchery and Conditioning Centre who, in front of an audience of higher-caste Centre workers, denounces Bernard for his antisocial behavior and again threatens to send him to Iceland.

Bernard, thinking that for the first time in his life he has the upper hand, defends himself by presenting the Director with his lost lover and unknown son, Linda and John. The humiliated Director resigns in shame. Bernard's new pet savage makes him the toast of London. Pursued by the highest members of society, able to bed any woman he fancies, Bernard revels in attention he once scorned.

Everyone who is anyone will endure Bernard to dine with the interesting, different, beautiful John. Even Lenina grows fond of the savage, while the savage falls in love with her. Bernard, intoxicated with attention, falls in love with himself. The victory, however, is short lived.

Linda, decrepit, toothless, friendless, goes on a permanent soma holiday while John, appalled by what he perceives to be an empty society, refuses to attend Bernard's parties. Society drops Bernard as swiftly as it had taken him. Bernard turns to the person he'd believed to be his one true friend, only to see Helmholtz fall into a quick, easy camaraderie with John. Bernard is left an outcast yet again as he watches the only two men he ever connected with find more of interest in each other than they ever did in him.

John and Helmholtz's island of peace is brief. John grows frustrated by a society he finds wicked and debased. He is moved by Lenina, but also loathes her sexual advances, which revolt and shame him. He is heartbroken when his mother succumbs to soma and dies in a hospital.

John's grief bewilders and revolts the hospital workers, and their lack of reaction to Linda's death prompts John to try to force humanity from the workers by throwing their soma rations out a window.

The ensuing riot brings the police who soma-gas the crowd.

Bernard and Helmholtz arrive to help John, but only Helmholtz helps him, while Bernard stands to the side. Bernard and Helmholtz are told they will be sent to Iceland and the Falkland Islands, two of several island colonies reserved for exiled citizens. Helmholtz looks forward to living on the remote Falkland Islands, where he can become a serious writer but Bernard is devastated.

Mond explains that exile to the islands is not so much a threat to force freethinkers to reform and rejoin society but a place where they may act as they please, because they will not be an influence on the population.

After Bernard and Helmholtz leave the room, a philosophical argument between Mustapha and John leads to the decision that John will not be sent to an island.

Mustapha says that he too once risked banishment to an island because of some experiments that were deemed controversial by the state. In the final chapters, John isolates himself from society in a lighthouse outside London where he finds his hermit life interrupted from within by lust for Lenina.

To atone, John brutally whips himself in the open, a ritual the Indians in his own village had said he wasn't capable of. His self-flagellation, caught on film and shown publicly, destroys his hermit life from without as hundreds of gawking sightseers, intrigued by John's violent behavior, fly out to watch the savage in person. Even Lenina comes to watch, crying a tear John does not see.

The sight of the woman whom he both adores and blames, is too much for him; John attacks and whips her. This sight of genuine, unbridled emotion drives the crowd wild with excitement, and — handling it as they are conditioned to — they turn on each other, in a frenzy of beating and chanting that devolves into a mass orgy of soma and sex. In the morning, John, hopeless, alone and horrified by his drug use, debasement and attack on Lenina, makes one last attempt to escape civilization and atone.Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.

Bernard and Helmholtz arrive to help John, but only Helmholtz helps him, while Bernard stands to the side.
