Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

August's book needs no introduction. Heres the synopsis: Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...

    Hi everyone,

    We're in the little alcove on the left of the front door. Depending on who turns up we may be a bit squashed in here tonight, but we'll play it by ear

    Two of my colleagues at work want to attend - hope that's okay!

      The more the merrier. It's a popular book :)

      Ah, they are both let downs! Well, one of them is, the other hasn't finished reading it yet, bah!

    Please could we have a little more notice next time a meet is moved? There were two of us sat there like lemons until we eventually realised what had happened...! Hope to make it next week though x

    • Rachel H.

      I'm really sorry about that, had an unavoidable issue to deal with. I gave everyone as much notice as I could. On the day of the meet up make sure you check you're email before coming. Hopefully it won't happen again.

    The delay may in fact mean I can now attend :o I haven't read BNW for a few years, so I'll see if I can refresh my memory on it with a quick blitz before next Tuesday.

    Sorry about this. Very last minute interview to prep for. Was looking forward to it and hope to make the next one. Sarah

    We seem to be dropping like flies! I can't make it either this evening... Am not quite finished the book, very much enjoying it though!

    See you next month, hopefully!

    Hi Rachel, woops it looks like I am not familiar with the format on here. Is it that you will have already read the book before the meet up? LOL I thought the book to be discussed the following meetup is given at the present meetup. Anyway I know of, but haven't read Brave New...

    August 27, 2013

    • Rachel H.

      Hi Ray, we read the book before the meet up and then discuss it at the meet up. If you still want to come tonight you can, but we will be talking about what happens and it will ruin the ending for you.

  • David C.

    Unfortunately I think I'll have to give this one a miss again :/ I'll definitely pop along to the next one.

  • Alan W.

    Sorry, can't make it now. Weekend overran...

    August 26, 2013

  • Rachel H.

    Hey guys,

    Hope you're all looking forward to discussing a Brave New World tomorrow night. Looks like there's going to be quite a few of us so we may need to split down into a couple of groups.

    Anyway I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
