Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Although Brave New World is a sci-fi classic, its doesn't feel like Science Fiction in the way some books do. It feels like the 1930s with advanced technology.
It doesn't have, in any form, a lot of the technology used today - cell phones, computers, nuclear power, etc. However, two of the characters do go to a movie where they can see and feel the film in great detail, which is mostly a reality with HighDef and special chairs.
Overall an OK novel with a good ending, but it doesn't feel quite right.
2 Stars
