BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley, written in 1931, C1, 3000 headwords, Penguin
By Helga Puigdomenech San Joan, 2º Bachillerato EFL
The main character, Bernard Marx, is an Alpha Plus worker who has an inferiority complex because of his short height, his different way of thinking and his different behaviour in his free time. He will turn out to be a problem for the stability of this perfect society.
The book talks about social problems, government power and corruption, human behaviour and weakness against the established political system, dreams of change, freedom, etc.
I would recommend the reading of this novel to those people who enjoy a futurist point of view and those who like to debate and criticise these themes, because there is a lot to talk about. In the book there is a wide range of vocabulary and grammatical structures, so, it can become a very hard read for those who have problems in understanding English.
