This particular edition is a lower readability/dumbed down version, which I did not know when I bought it. The story itself is still incredible and very interesting, but when I compared this version to the original, I was stunned at the difference. A great deal of the rich description is missing. Words have been simplified, i.e. "transom" becomes "the opening above the door", even a simple word like "khaki" has been written as "light brown." The readability level of this book is about 3rd grade, though the story itself takes a higher comprehension level.

I purchased the Kindle version of this book, thinking it was the same book I'd read in high school. Somehow it didn't seem as rich as the version I remembered. When I noticed key terms (e.g., Centrifugal bumble-puppy) were missing, I realized this was a very abridged, dumbed-down version of the book. Unfortunately this was not disclosed in the description. Buyer beware!

Lots of dystopian tales came out in the post war era. Some of them came true. Others came close. Every day it seems that more people want to control what we say and what we think. If more people read this book, and 1984, and Fahrenheit 451, and Animal Farm. Oh well I guess people are too consumed posting their every feeling on Facebook . I read this every few years to keep reminding myself

This was required reading for an English class in college, 40 years ago. I found my re-read better than the first! The savage did not fit into any society he found. For the sake of the peace & harmony for the society he had to be an outcast. Interesting perspective of a truly controlled society.

The book itself is great, but this kindle edition is highly abridged and close to a travesty to the original book. The product description should say so clearly. Do not buy this version.

This is a must read for all of us living it's prophecies. From test tube babies, to SOMA holidays, to genetic manipulation of intelligence, Huxley produced a scary and real future. Much has already happened and it is easy to see that the rest eventually will.

Another abrupt and sad ending much like Orwell's but it does make you think about society and the way people behave
I personally enjoyed reading the book. It kept me wanting to read more. I would recommend this book to those who like to read something different and have an open mind.
