Is THe Road the sequel to Brave New World

Well we are almost done with The Road and we finished Brave New World. So I have a question seeing both stories do you think The Road is a sequel to Brave New World?

The Road

What has been your opinion of this book since we are almost done with it


What is the importance of fire in this novel? In my mind, fire plays two roles--the destruction of humanity and/or the hope to carry on. Fire, and the effects of fire, is seen everywhere in this novel, from the burned out towns to the layers of ash covering everything. Which instance of fire is more influential to the main characters? The fire of destruction or the fire which enables them to carry on?

What would you do if you was in the same situation as the father and the son?

Father and Son

So far from what we have read in The Road, What do you think about the relationship between the Man and his son? Do you think they have a good relationship? Does the father give the son to much false hope?


From our class dicussions of the Road the past few days, the question of why do the people in the book fight for survival keeps comming up. What reasons do you think they have to stay alive, or why do you think they should just give up?

Brave New World and Gattaca

We can see some similarities and differences between the world in Gattaca and Brave New World. The ability to modify the genetic makeup of a baby and the different castes. Since Gattaca supposedly takes place in the not too distant future. Could the events in Gattaca help change the world into the society we see in Brave New World. Pretty much could Gattaca be a prequel to Brave New World.

Utopia or Eutopia

The word Utopia derives from the Greek words ou ("not") and topos ("place") and simply means "not a place." Throughout history, there has been countries founded as an Utopia. In history, civilizations that try to achieve a communitarian lifestyle generally disinigrate or end in a repressive rule. The utopian Soviet Union is an example of how Utopia's turn into a repressive rule before falling apart.
Contrasting from a Utopia is a Eutopia, which is Greek for a "good place", and is attainable in the real world. The organizational structure (country, kingdom, etc...) that creates the eutopia consists of a limited government that permits human creativity and achievement. Individual self-interest is not considered a bad thing, because it expresses itself in relationships of mutual benefit that result in productivity and the generation of wealth. Wealth and happiness does not have to be forced in a Eutopia.
Is the Brave New World a Utopia or a Eutopia?

If you are interested in reading more about the difference between a Utopia and a Eutopia, the following link is to a .pdf document that is very informative. Utopia verses Eutopia

Social Caste

Every civilization in history has had a social caste. In the Brave New World, there is five social classes--Alpha, Beta, Delta, Epsilon, and Gamma. Which of these classes would you be in?

I think that we would be considered Beta's. The majority of us are not the super-rich, but we are also not poor. The majority of us are being "bred" to succeed in the world due to the schools we have gone too. This is similar to how the Alpha's and Beta's were bred on the assembly line.
