Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Via: Guardian:

Banned in Ireland when it first appeared in 1932, and removed from shelves and objected to ever since, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World is still making waves today. The novel of a dystopian future was one of the most complained about books in America last year, with readers protesting over its sexually explicit scenes, “offensive” language and “insensitivity”.

    Looks like I have a book to read.

    Any book the sheeple want banned is worth reading.

    Always read the banned ones. Books only get banned if they interfere with programming.

    In fact, it’s still available here:

    …but I always preferred paper. Browsers and technology in general are distracting and seem to dilute things you might otherwise absorb in isolation. I’m big on technology, but sometimes avoid it like the plague. Books are one example.
