First Lines: Brave New World

As a story, there’s not much to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World: the characters are uninteresting at best, and the plot is merely there to hang theories on.

As a novel of ideas, Brave New World is much more interesting. Huxley describes a society where everything that faintly resembles individualism has been abolished in favor of stability. Quite interesting.
