I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley The first half of the book was so boring I could've mindlessly dozed off. It's ridiculous all the scientific terms inoculated into the huge paragraphs full of information dumps. However, the last third of the book somehow redeemed itself with all the interesting conspiracies and John's savagery. Basically, there was no way for a happy ending in the 'brave new world'. It's so ironic and I don't know if this really could happen in real life. Unlike others, I think this is a bit too far-fetched and impossible in this world. Thanks for the concept though, it's great to learn of alternate worlds where polygamy, twins, incest, and erotic play is natural.
