I attempted to read this title a few years ago when I was in college in my "spare time." I remember thinking it was an odd little book and I was having a hard time getting into it. I believe I only read 60 or so pages before giving up and turning to my school reading instead.
Since then, I have been meaning to give it another go. I always hear wonderful things about Huxley, but I haven't read anything by him. A good friend of mine raves about Island, which has long been on my TBR list as well as this title, so perhaps another try will do the trick.
This is the only Huxley novel on this project list, but if I like it, I will definitely be giving his other work a try. As a sci-fi lover, I need to read more of his work!
Let's keep our fingers crossed that this is a perfect book for today!
