Island

by Aldous Huxley

 

Aldous Huxley's Brave New World is a dystopian classic that all too presciently warns about the oppressive danger an unchecked totalitarian society can place on an individual's pursuit of freedom, meaning and purpose. But his last novel, Island, is an intriguing exploration of a utopian society. The book's cynical war-correspondent protagonist is shipwrecked on a Polynesian island, largely-isolated from outside influences, which has developed a culture that places freedom, happiness, fulfillment and spiritual growth over materialism. Although he had secretly been hired to help facilitate the exploitation of the island's untapped oil reserves, which would ultimately destroy this utopian paradise, his experiences on the Island cause him to examine his inner life and help transform his jaded view of human potential and his place in the world.
