But let's start by looking at the main story. One of the main characters - it took me only five out of eighteen chapters to find that out - is Bernard Marx. He is different, because he is not as tall and handsome as the other Alphas. That makes him an outsider, which again makes him redefine his personal values.
Keep that in mind, I have to explain the political system of the World State. It is - of course - situated in the future and it's based on stability, which is reached through happiness. People are not born but produced in factories, up to eighty twins out of one egg. Than they are assigned to a caste (Alpha is the highest one, Epsilon the lowest) and conditioned on liking their caste and being happy with their job. After work, they take drugs or have sex or do both, and they are focused on consumption. Furthermore, they totally forgot about religion and poetry and art and science.
So Bernard, the outsider, takes a girl on a trip to a reservation in New Mexico (biggest part of the story takes place in London), where they meet many Indians but also John and his mother, who comes from London but got lost on a trip to the Reservation. Bernard takes both John and his mother back to London, where especially John becomes a real attraction (people in the World State usually don't have mothers or fathers).
What I hate about the book is the language. John, who had only one book when he grew up in the Reservation (Shakespeare's works) always quotes Shakespeare so if you don't know them by heart you're basically screwed. Also, there isn't a real story since it is mostly about how Bernard and his girl like the Reservation and how John likes the "Brave New World". And they have to have group sex instead of going to church. It's so weird. And boring. And just to long. It might have been cool seventy years ago.
Just two young ladies who need to spread their love for books.
What kind of book is in which category?
