Hallooo,

ich muss nachher mein Summary über das Buch "Brave New World" abgeben und will diesmal GANZ sicher sein, dass sich keine gramamtikalischen Fehler eingeschlichen haben.
Ihr kennt das ja, eigene Fehler erkennt man meistens nicht so schnell wie die der anderen...

The novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, published in 1932, opens in London, nearly six hundred years in the future. Human life has been almost entirely industrialized, controlled by World Controllers at the top. The inhabitants are divided in ranks, from Alpha to Epsilon, which defines their position and duties in society. Every human being is conditioned differently, according to the rank, so a strict caste system is formed. Natural processes as birth, aging, and death are despised, since life is created in test tubes. Bernard Marx, an Alpha-Plus, emerges as the single discontented person in a world where material comfort and physical pleasure are the only concerns. Before Bernard leaves for his trip to the Savage Reservation, a place far from the controlled, technological world of London, his superior, the Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning, called D.H.C., reveals that he visited the Savage Reservation, too. He confesses that he lost the woman he loved there. He is so embarrassed by this un-acceptable emotion that he turns on Bernard, threatening him with banishment. When Ber-nard and Lenina reach the Savage Reservation, they meet Linda, who lived in London and gave birth to a son, John, about 20 years ago. Bernard realizes that John is the D.H.C.’s son, seeing his opportunity to gain power over his superior. He brings Linda and John back to London and presents them publicly, deeply exposing the D.H.C., who flees in terror. While Linda adjusts herself easily, John cannot identify himself with the Brave New World. He ap-pears as an educated man, who has always lived according to traditional values. Becoming more and more disgusted by the identical human beings surrounding him, he starts to boycott the Soma consume. His actions result in a riot and he has to face the World Controller Mustapha Mond, who acknowledges the flaws of the Brave New World, but pronounces the loss of freedom and individuality a small price to pay for stability. John decides to live outside the city from now on, where he tries to purify himself with ritual whippings. He quickly be-comes a public curiosity. When Lenina appears in the crowd, John furiously attacks her with the whip. John`s frenzy inflames the crowd, and, in accordance with their social training, the violence turns into a sexual orgy, with John drawn in more or less unwillingly. The next day, when John awakes from the effects of Soma, he realizes in horror what he has done. The novel closes on an image of John`s body, hanging lifeless from a wooden beam.

Danke schonmal für eure Hilfe! :)

sehr gut geschrieben. ich glaube, es gibt nur einige tippfehler:

be(-)comes

embarrassed by this un(-)acceptable

und ein vorschlag von mir: Bei einer Zusammenfassung sollst du ja möglichst sachlich sein. "Becoming more and more disgusted" zerstört meiner Meinung nach deine Objektivität. Schreib einfach: "Becoming more disgusted"

und noch eine sache. Sag am Anfang was in diesem Roman thematisiert wird. Es bringt auch +Punkte, zu sagen, dass dieser Roman ein Dystopie ist.

Oh ja, ich hab in Word diese automatische Silbentrennung eingestellt, daher kommen die Bindestriche.
