Brave New World chapter book summary :

The novel opens in F (after Ford) 632 (2540 AD in the Gregorian calendar) in World State City, London, where citizens are created in a predefined class (or caste) based on intelligence and labor through artificial insemination and childhood endocrine programs. Lenina Crown, a hatchery worker, popular and sexually desirable, but not Bernard Marx, a psychologist.

He is shorter in size than the average member of his upper caste, which gives him an inferiority complex. His work with sleep-education allows him to understand and reject the practices of his society to keep his citizens peaceful, including the constant use of a soothing, happiness-producing drug called Soma.

Faced with disaster, Bernard is vocal and arrogant about his criticism, and his boss is considering deporting him to Iceland because of his inconsistencies. His only friend is Helmholtz Watson, a talented writer who finds it difficult to use his talents creatively in their pain-free society.

Bernard took a vacation with Lenina at a Savage Reservation in New Mexico outside the World State, where the two observe for the first time naturally born people, diseases, aging processes, other languages ​​and religious lifestyles. The folk culture of the village is similar to that of the contemporary Native American group of the region, including the Anasajis, the Hopi and Juni Puebloyan peoples.

Bernard and Lenina witness a violent public ceremony and then confront Linder, originally a World State woman who lives in a reservation with her son John, now a young man. He also went on vacation reservation many years ago, but fell out of his team and fell behind. She was already pregnant by a fellow-holidaymaker (published as Bernard's boss, hatchery and conditioner director).

She did not try to return to the kingdom of the world because of the shame of her pregnancy. Despite spending his entire life in reservations, John was never accepted by the villagers and his and Linder's life was difficult and unpleasant. Linda taught John to read, albeit from the only book in her possession - a scientific manual and another book John found: Shakespeare's Complete Works. Deprived by the villagers, John was able to express his feelings in terms of Shakespearean plays, often quoted from The Tempest, King Lear, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet.

Linda wants to go back to London now, and John wants to see this "brave new world." Bernard sees an opportunity to thwart his deportation plan and is allowed to take Linda and John back. Upon his return to London, John meets the director and calls him his "father", an obscenity that causes laughter. The humiliated director resigned in shame before following the exiled Bernard.

Bernard, the "custodian" of the "barbarian" John who is now regarded as a celebrity, was admired by the highest members of society and he was once rebuked. Although Bernard's popularity is short-lived, and he becomes jealous that John only really bonds with the literary-minded Helmholtz. Considered abusive and unfriendly, Linda spends all her time using Soma, when she refuses to attend a social event hosted by John Bernard, shocked at what she sees as an empty society.

Lenina and John are physically attracted to each other, but John's views on romance and love, based on Shakespeare's writings, are inconsistent with Lenina's freewheeling attitude towards sex. He tries to seduce her, but she attacks him, before he is suddenly informed that his mother is on his deathbed.

He rushes to Linder's bed, creating a scandal, because it's not the "right" attitude to death. Some children who enter the ward for a "death-situation" come to John as disrespectful until he physically assaults one. He then tried to break the soma distribution to a lower-caste group, telling them he was freeing them. Helmholtz and Bernard rushed to stop the ensuing riot, which police cracked down on.

Bernard, Helmholtz, and John were all brought before Mustafa Mond, "the resident world regulator of Western Europe," who told Bernard and Helmholtz that they would be deported to the island for their anti-social activities. Bernard asks for a second chance, but Helmholtz welcomes the opportunity to be a real person and chooses the Falkland Islands as his destination, believing that their bad weather will inspire his writing.

Mond tells Helmholtz that deportation is actually a reward. The islands are full of the most attractive people in the world, people who do not fit the social model of the world state. Mond outlines for John the events that led to today's society and his argument for a caste system and social control.

John rejects Mond's argument, and Mond defends John's claim, claiming "the right to be unhappy." John asks if he can go to the islands, but Mond refuses, saying he wants to see what happens next.

Disturbed by his new life, John moved to an abandoned hilltop lighthouse near the village of Putnam, where he seeks to adopt a solitary ascetic lifestyle in order to purify himself from civilization, to practice self-flagging. It attracts journalists and eventually hundreds of surprised visitors, hoping to witness his bizarre behavior.

For a while, it seemed that after attracting public attention, John could be left alone, but a documentary maker secretly portrayed John's self-flag from afar and created an international sensation when the documentary was released. Helicopters arrive with more journalists. Crowds of people descended on the crowd, claiming that he had performed the ritual of whipping them.

A young woman, identified as Lenina, appears from a helicopter. John, seeing a woman he both caresses and hates, whips her in anger and then turns the whip on himself, arouses the crowd, whose wild behavior transforms into a soma-fueled orgy. The next morning John wakes up on the ground and swallows remorse for his participation in the night's events.

That evening, a swarm of helicopters appeared on the horizon, and the story of last night's orgy was all over the paper. The first spectators and reporters came and saw that John was dead. John, though madly in love with Lenina, could not bear his indulgence, and he hanged himself, constantly annoyed by the spectators.
