I'm reading old books, lately, and this one has been on my list since I read 1984 and The Handmaid's Tale earlier this year. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
Not the most gripping opening sentence I've ever read, but so far I'm enjoying it.
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
I do love this dialogue between Fanny and Lenina - about why you should have more than one man at a time. In a world with no human pregnancies, and no family relationships, why not, after all?
Enjoy your reading - leave me a comment and I'll visit you soon.
This is one of my favorite books - I've read it several times. Might be time for another re-read next year. Hope you enjoy it!
This is another book that I have heard so much about that it feels like I've read it but I'm pretty sure I haven't. This week I'm spotlighting Lure of Oblivion by Suzanne Wright - an urban fantasy from my review stack. Happy reading!
This is one of those rare books I have actually read a couple of times! I love it. I do hope you do, too!
Oh i love the first sentence - it's gripping to me in other ways - a hatchery and conditioning centre in Central London?
A WORLD STATE Motto? I remember thinking 'WTF?' LOL
Have a great weekend x
I am curious about this one. I have a feeling I'll enjoy it more than expected:)
My Friday 56 from Meddling Kids
It has been a LONG time since I read this book, and I remember loving it. Enjoy! Here's mine: “THE WIFE BETWEEN US”
Some interesting covers for it. I like how it sounds too! Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
It's been a long time since I read this one (back when I was a teenager). Glad to see you enjoying it.
I'm reading a Christmas mystery this week: The Christmas Murder.
