Parents need to know that Aldous Huxley's 1932 novel "Brave New World" is one of the most famous dystopian satires in the English language. Set in a society given completely over to pleasure and consumerism, it is both humorous and chilling, and ultimately raises questions about what makes us human. In this book, set about six hundred years in the future, family is obsolete and technology has taken over. The world created by Huxley is eerie in how real it feels.
