The main characters are Bernard Marx, Lenina Crowne, John the Savage, the Controller Mustapha Mond, and Linda. Other than John, all of these characters are test tube babies in a futuristic world. As a disutopian novel, this work shows how the future and technology can have a devastating effect on the development of humanity. Each character is bred into a particular class of people who are genetically formed to have a specific level of intelligence suited to a specific job. Values and behaviors are impressed on the young ones through sleep conditioning messages played over and over, eliminating the need of a family unit to raise children.
