As a teacher I am always looking for something interesting to do with the novels that we read in class. Many of my students have difficulty with Brave New World, so as a treat we listened to this version of BNW in class. The students loved it, some even admitted that listening to the novel helped them to understand the novel and now are actually reading it (and liking it).

Too little, too late

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is such a large abridgement that it didnt even begin to tell the story. I was very dissapointed.

What was most disappointing about Aldous Huxley and CBS Radio Workshop ’s story?

It was just too short. I did not communicate the idea and meaning of the full book.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?
