Do I read 1984 by George Orwell or Brave New World by Alduos Huxley. Guys ik yall might not know these books but i need some help asap?
They are both quite interesting dystopian novels.Personally I think Brave New Work gave a more accurate prediction of a possible future, but you might want to read both.1984 is a lot more harrowing and more violent, it was also written later, so you might want to read Brave New World first.
Both, Orwell predicted violent oppression of the truth, much like the Democrats are currently trying to implement,Huxley predicted the truth would be buried under irrelevance, like the modern internet.
In 1958, Huxley wrote Brave New World Revisited, a defense of his earlier novel against the later depiction of aStalinist society envisioned by Orwell in 1984. The 1958 BNWR can give you insights into the differences between the BNW and 1984.
I would go with read 1984 and listen to the audio drama for Brave New World https://archive.org/details/CbsRadioWork...
I always find it strange that so many people ask WHICH of two books they should read, as if there were no option to read BOTH.
BOTH is the right option. Each will illuminate the other, and YOU will end up the richer for having read both.
There's no fun or laughs in 1984, or in Brave New World for that matter but its certainly lighter in tone than Orwell's book. Another book to check out is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury which must have been an influence and is an easy cracking read.
Why not both?
Read both as both of them are about authoritarian societies. With all the genetic engineering going on and the possibility of genetically engineered babies"Brave New World" would be appropriate.If you are more interested in the rise of the populism and the weakening of democratic institutions in democracies then it's "1984".
Read both, of course. Both are classics.
