Aldous Huxley: Point counter point

A couple of days ago I’ve completed the reading of the Italian version from Adelphi and I’m quite disappointed.

It took me about one month (with other books in parallel) to reach the end: the story did not really picked up at any time and this slowed down my pace a lot.

I’m ok with novels that make a philosophical or political point and I’ve found stimulating a number of points made by Huxley in the book, but in my opinion a novel must first entertain  and only later send an higher message.

From the same author I’ve read  “Brave new world” and  “After Many a Summer Dies the Swan” with satisfaction.

I suggest skipping this book and invest time in better readings.
