Island

by Aldous Huxley - £9.99  Vintage (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099477778 | ISBN 10: 0099477777

For over a hundred years the Pacific island of Pala has been the scene of a unique experiment in civilisation. Its inhabitants live in a society where western science has been brought together with eastern philosophy and humanism to create a paradise on earth. When cynical journalist, Will Farnaby, arrives to search for information about potential oil reserves on Pala, he quickly falls in love with the way of life on the island. Soon the need to complete his mission becomes an intolerable burden...In counterpoint to Brave New World and Ape and Essence, in Island, Huxley gives us his vision of utopia.
