Brave New World: A Graphic Novel

We rated this book:


This graphic novel adaption of Aldous Huxley’s famous dystopian novel Brave New World may not make sense unless you’ve read the original, although even if you have, you still might be left with more questions than answers!

The adaptor and illustrator, Fred Fordham, uses different colored illustrations throughout the story such as monotone flashbacks and contrasting palettes between the civilized and “savage” cities. I liked Fordham’s graphic novel adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, so I had high hopes for this book, but for whatever reason, the graphic novel format was more successful for that story than Huxley’s and I found myself confused and frustrated.

This might be a good addition just after reading the original novel, but it doesn’t provide enough on its own.
