The Theme of Identity in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip Dick
We are born, we live, and we die. Every human being in the entire world owns something incredibly valuable. It lacks physical quality, but can be seen.

A Review of the Dangers of Technology in Brave New World, a Novel by Aldous Huxley
Brave New World was an okay book in my opinion. I had an incredibly hard time focusing on the events that were taking place and unfolding in the book, whether we were reading it in class or I was reading it on my own.
