Has Anyone here read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Well I'm reading it for my composition class, and I couldn't go to school on Friday becuase of having to take my dog to the vet for eating some left over ham in the trash :rolleyes:. And I had to catch up last night, so I sat down and started reading, and I almost barfed when you get to the part with the little chidren touching each other...I had visions of MJ again *shutters*. All I wanna know is if the book continues this way, so I can keep a pale next to me :mad:

And oh, do you know of any other books with these types of things so I can stay clear of them?

If a book can seriously make you that sick, maybe you should see a doctor.

That book was SOOOOOO boring...

And the reason the kids are doing that is because they are ENCOURAGED too (sick bastards) in that world. Sex is a thing done for fun, not out of love...kinda like the way it is today.

But still, that book was sick...

UNLV, I've said it countless times before, and I remember posting something about your school...Mojave right? Yeah I hated going to your school for sporting games because of that damn pig farm next to it :mad:, WTF is up with that?

And I will never ead that book thanks to you :)

catcher in the rye
a seperate piece
brave new world
are books schools use,
they did back when i went to school

you have to realize of course a lot of what sc-fi writers
write is a direct reflection of how they personally feel
our society is like, or heading to; so if i makes you sick
you have to hate the world you are living in, read the books,
see that our future needs to be brighter; then you have to go
out there and try as hard as you can to make it so,
and to keep an authors vision of hear, now and what might be from happening

Yeah I know, because he was ahead of his time with most of those things like teh helicoptor, and test tube babies and the like, but come on I mean even back then when he wrote the book being a petafile wasn't healthy...

Catcher in the Rye, now that was an utterly pointless, yet fulfilling book O.o

ya i read catcher never did like it much myself, Salinger wrote like one book and then sat back and made a name for himself as a one hit novelist wonder. i forget tons of what went on in brave new world; you got to remeber theses guys who wrote them did so in a completely different world then us today.

but if your complaining about this book, i hope they never make you read naked lunch, or any of Millers Nexus, PLexus, da Hexus books, or topic of cancer tropic of capricorn.

you want two good old books to read 3 actually
frankenstein by mary shelly
jane eire (on of the brontes cant rememer which)
moby dick
also try reading
lewis carrol's 2 alice books
gullivers travels
pinochio (book not movie)

there are lots of books out there that are still good

and if pedo action or creepy sex stuff creeps you out
stay away from Heinlein, sounds like your grandma
talking dirty to you.

heinleins moon is a harsh mistress
and starship troopers (are the only two from him i like)
