Inevitably, this island of bliss attracts the envy and enmity of the surrounding world. A conspiracy is underway to take over Pala, and events are set in motion when an agent of the conspirators, a newspaperman named Faranby, is shipwrecked there. What Faranby doesn't expect is how his time with the people of Pala will revolutionize all his values and - to his amazement - give him hope.

A great narration for a great book.
Simon Vance does a great job of narrating Aldous Huxley's lesser known great work, Island. If you were like me and left slightly depressed by the dystopian universe portrayed in Huxley's more famous work, A Brave New World, then I highly recommend Island. The world of Island is the antithesis of A Brave New World, and lays out what Huxley viewed as a more perfect modern society. I'll leave my review there as to not spoil anything for you, just know that it's a good book, and that the quality of the narration is top notch.

Favorite Huxley work
Amazing book about self discovery, parallels to modern society, Utopianism, spiritualism and enlightenment. I highly recommend this book as a lighter more positive version of Huxley's Brave New World
