A great book but I wanted more

The telling of Brave New World seemed to lose a little in the Radio 4 dramatisation. I cannot explain why I was thinking more about the houses in leafy Surrey where this would be heard rather than than the morality tale and commentary on a modern society.

Suffice to say the acting was good but for me too staged. I followed the story but was not swept up in it. Perhaps in hindsight a reading of the book would have been better.

A Brilliant piece of scientific literature TOTALLY DESTROYED by
modern update. I have read the book and watched the old Hollywood movie and both put this piece of garbage to shame.
Once again modern update ruins the plot.
