Brave New World

1171633 Ratings - 22586 Review

En este libro visionario escrito en 1932, Aldous Huxley imagina una sociedad que utiliza la genética y la clonación para el condicionamiento y el control de los individuos. "Un mundo feliz" describe con precisión aterradora la fórmula para crear una dictadura perfecta, una cárcel sin muros en la cual los prisioneros portan orgullosos sus grilletes.

La novela presenta un mundo en el que finalmente se han cumplido los peores vaticinios: triunfan los dioses del consumo y la comodidad, y el orbe se organiza en diez zonas en apariencia seguras y estables. Sin embargo, este mundo ha sacrificado los valores humanos esenciales, y sus habitantes son procreados in vitro a imagen y semejanza de una cadena de montaje.
