A great performance

I had to read this book for my degree (like so many others) and this dramatised version definitely help in producing a visual reference in my mind. Some of the sound effects and music are a little strange and dated, but if you haven't read Brave New World you should really check out this version.

Short but enjoyable

I didn't realise how short this would be, I should probably read the details more. The dramatisation is a little dated but I think it stands the test of time. The story is great though and this is definitely worth a listen
