Aldous Huxley describes a world where technology replaces religion, and humanity is produced on an assembly line. Emotions and the mind are controlled by medication. This book may have been responsible for beginning my intellectual concerns with unquestioned, secretive authority, and provided me early on with a means to articulate and consider the things that upset me. Also, after reading this book I was unable to continue reciting the pledge of allegiance in high school because I found the image of the act in the classroom to be disturbing.
It blows my mind that Nabokov wrote this novel in something like his fourth language. His writing style is so sophisticated. In Lolita, I thought he told the story in a very direct manner and yet the overall feeling of the book seems aimless. Not easy to do.
