Reviews

"Island remains important and highly enjoyable" -- Washington Post Book World

"Huxley's final word about the human condition and the possibility of the good society. . . . Island is a welcome and in many ways unique addition to the select company of books--from Plato to now--that have presented, in imaginary terms, a coherent view of what society is not but might be." -- New York Times Book Review

"A mirror for modern man. . . . Should be read and reread." -- Saturday Review

"Island's warnings about religious fanaticism, the exercise of massive military power, the geopolitical importance of oil and the development of artificial insemination seem extraordinarily prophetic." -- The Guardian

"One of the truly great philosophical novels" -- The Times (London)

One of the 99 Best Modern Novels -- New York Times Book Review
