    "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.

    "good dramatization, mediocre substance"

    I enjoyed the performances, but would have preferred the unabridged story. not many choices available.

    "Refreshing interpretation"

    Really enjoyed radio production. A nice break from single narrator reading the original text. One of my favorite books with a refreshing interpretation of scenes and characters different from my own.
