Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a futuristic dystopian novel. The World State is inhabited by genetically modified humans and runs on an intelligence-based social hierarchy. Bernard Marx doesn’t fit in with the rest of the World State’s population, so when he visits “the Savage Reservation” and sees the opportunity, he returns home with two imperfect individuals to gain attention. I felt sorry for Linda; there was no way she would have ever been accepted by the world in which she grew up.

The Thousandth Floor is a futuristic fantasy, set in Manhattan, New York in 2118. The world has evolved drastically, with mind-controlled objects and more. The first edition to this trilogy has me intrigued and I can't wait to read the next book. I love the way each chapter is told by a different character and how everyone is connected at the end. The plot is very well-thought and detailed. I recommend this book if you like suspense and are a fan of fantasy.
