4 stars out of 5 ****
A futuristic look at mankind advancing biology to the point where ethical dilemmas arise but are ignored by those who feel superior to the masses. The elite create a world free of disease and many flaws in human beings to establish a more perfect existence. There are many interesting and unexpected circumstances that challenge the control of this world the more some people begin to think for themselves and challenge fate dictated by this sterile system.
Aldous Huxley writes beautifully and Michael York narrates eloquently in warning those who feel mankind can achieve perfection based on ability, intelligence, and control; but mankind's flaws and limitations write the story that reveals control is elusive and momentary, at best, while perfection is a dream never attained in a brave new world.
