How have I never read Brave New World before?

I’m 80 pages in and I’m already much the better for it. My 1940s edition begins with a droll and somewhat apologetic forward by the author–I was a bit worried. What immediately follows is a fully realized, beautiful dystopian comedy. In terms of science fiction writing, which I believe people do consider this, the style is up there with Asimov.
