This is your ending on drugs — 6 years ago
Ok. This book was fluid and beautifully written. The concepts on how to run a Utopian society where the indiviuality of every person is understood and utilized for the greater good of the community were, in my opinion, fascinating and plausible.
I felt that the ending was very unsatisfying though. Aldous Huxley was apparently very in to the hallucinogens in his later years and as this book (being his last published book before he died) seems to be very disjointed by the end. It was kind of a ’What the Fuck?" ending really.
It was still just lushly amazing to read and probably one of the best books I’ve read in the last 365 days. I guess that the first half had me hoping for a new messiah in Huxley and he couldn’t deliver.
So much for looking to one man for leadership, though I guess he warned me not to do that.
