"Five hundred years in the future, there is no war; no disease; no poverty," according to press notes. "But perfection comes at a price. In order to maintain social stability, humanity has been stripped of the very things that make us human. True love has been replaced with free sex, art & faith have been replaced with mindless sport & distraction & citizens are brainwashed & drugged into a perpetual state of happiness. Humans don't even reproduce anymore; they are hatched in test tubes to avoid the dangers of family. But there are places - savage reservations - where people still live according to the 'old' ways. These savages are fenced in & know nothing of the outside world, until one such savage - John - is given special permission to leave & experience the wonders of civilization. Two worlds collide in Huxley's provocative story about love, humanity & loss, set against the backdrop of a world where the most dangerous thing you can do, is to have an original thought."
