“Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley
As is the way with many dystopian novels, individuality is not only frowned upon, but punished in “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley. In this novel, the governing body wants people to be happy, so love is forbidden, everyone must take daily grams of soma to ward off depression, and babies are born in test tubes. While Huxley, like many dystopian writers, foreshadows quite a few of the conveniences we have today, he draws to our attention the drawbacks of taking this too far.
