Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
A utopian world of socialism, genetic engineering, and mindless happiness is questioned by one of its inhabitants upon finding love. In this world devoid of individuality, Bernard Marx (the main character) finds himself questioning the world around him and on a quest to find what is missing.
What is missing is individuality and self-awareness, something which Marx has but does not realize. A truly fascinating look at a future which is both wonderful and terrible, this book should be on everyone’s shelf.
