Way ahead of its time, 'Brave New World' was Huxley's fifth novel but his first stab at dystopian sci-fi, coming off the back of a successful collection of satirical novels. Many of the character names and events echo the figureheads of its day, expertly using the threat of the future as an indictment of the present.
Taking a witty and bewilderingly look at mass capitalism (and religion), 'Brave New World' is set in "the year of our Ford 632" (AD 2540) in other words, a little over 600 years since Henry Ford's motorcars took on the world.
