Brave New World (Recommended Reads)
There are some pieces so well-known and renowned for being thought-provoking classics that you always seem to come across them. Eventually, the time comes when you eventually cave in and decide to commit yourself to reading that book. In some cases, you will leave after a few pages or paragraphs perplexed as to why so many people recommended it. In others, you will reach the end, and join the choir in being of those who sing praises of the piece, and recommend it.
It is a work that has stood the test of time in still somehow seeming relevant – and that is no easy feat. I always would see it in the same sentence as ‘1984’ and having read both, I can see why. Both provide different viewpoints of this dystopian society, and in a strange way, both have scary resemblances to the current world. When you consider the times in which they were written, both have stood the test of time in strangely still being relevant – and that is one sign, in my eyes, of what makes a book a classic piece.
The sentiment can only be repeated as I have joined the choir – it is worth reading and thinking over.
