Book #2: Brave New World

Author: Aldous Huxley

Published: 1932

Fun Fact: The nineties movie “Demolition Man” starring Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock contains several references to BNW, including Bullock’s character’s name, Lenina Huxley.

A Rose By Any Other Name: In BNW, characters will sometimes say things like, “My Ford!” or, “Year of our Ford.” This is in reference to Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company. His company’s mass production of the Model-T spawned the idea of mass producing humans in the attempt to create a utopian society.

You Might Like This Book (Even If You Don’t Like Books):  … if you’re into Sci Fi, if you liked Demolition Man, if you ever thought to yourself, “Procreation should be homogenized and controlled!”
