My friend Celia is a huge Huxley fan so some time ago I bought a copy of Crome Yellow but never really had an awful lot of time to read it Last week I dove in and absolutely adore it It s the Great Gatsby of the United Kingdom a novel entrenched in 1920s high society lifestyles of dinner parties and estates Huxley focuses most directly on Denis a struggling poet who cannot uite grasp the art of writing something up to par nor can he win the heart of the young lady he has fallen for What was most exceptional about this novel to me at least was the time Huxley dedicates to presenting each character and the care with which he does it Henry Wimbush is perhaps my favourite of the lot a man fascinated by tales of his ancestry tales as often filled with disappointment and melancholy as with luck and prosperity but above all with a subtle humour that almost ticklesI recommend this novel without hesitation and look forward to reading of Huxley s work

I had never read any of Huxley s novels other than Brave New World and was surprised to find that his first novel Crome Yellow is uite far from a sci fi novel being instead of the species of British manor satires that seem to make up about half of the novels in the English language Not only this but the back of the book says that even less happens than is normal in these novels That didn t exactly sound like what I wanted to read on a weekend night but it was already in my hand so I cracked it open sniffed the book odor sneezed and then began reading And I think it s fantastic Yes nothing happens even less than usual It s one of these novels that a young person writes about young people expressing enormous thoughts in tiny conversations As Mr Scogan bemoans in the novel Why will young men continue to write about things so entirely uninteresting as the mentality of adolescents and artists Note Huxley s attempt to show his self awareness by forecasting the failure of his own projectHis project doesn t fail though because the writing is wonderful Each turn of phrase is a treasure And there s a story about a pack of hunting dogs except all of the dogs are pugs Yes it s about a few people in a manor talking about poetry to make their lives seem important But it s hilarious And wry And erudite And totally worth reading no matter what the blurb on the back of the book leads you to think

Aldous Huxley ↠ 6 free read Crome Yellow free read À 6 Ttemps to woo the young Anne Wimbush are met with every possible obstacleFirst published in 1921 Crome Yellow was Aldous Huxley's much acclaimed debut nove. Years ago before I knew about Goodreads I had heard about Aldous Huxley s Brave New World and soon read and enjoyed that dystopian novel After joining Goodreads I noticed that Huxley had many other books besides his classic novel of course he must have but the beauty of Goodreads is all is here with a search of an author I decided on reading Crome Yellow and Mortal Coils now because I had bought this Kindle edition years ago and thought it was time to see of Huxley s writing This edition has both books but I will review Mortal Coils under that title All my notes and highlights are here if interested This edition has several little typos which I reported but nothing majorI had no idea going into Crome Yellow what was in store for me and would I like it It was not a fast read for me for several reasons A I was looking several things up mind you not a lot but I love doing that because I always learn something new and B I was still drained from the virus I had which made me fall asleep at the drop of a hat I always think of Gary Cooper s daughter talking about her father being able to do that on the movie set when they had a break I like to go on tangents Does that mean I did not enjoy this wonderful uirky book No I actually enjoyed it and when I thought of it on the whole it was uite a uirky gem Why do I call it uirky I label it as such because if you are looking for a definite story you will not be thrilled but there is a story here It kind of reminds me of a gone wrong Elizabeth von Arnim s The Enchanted April In Arnim s novel several females come together and find common feelings and friendships whereas as in Huxley s story you have a get together of family and friends but there is kind of a disconnect After reading Mortal Coils and Crome Yellow I get of a sense what kind of writer he was and his vast ability to tap into the human being with all its pathos goodness evilness and yes self centeredness There are many degrees of this in humans which vary from person to person but there is always some amount of selfishness even when we are around people it is there It doesn t mean we care nothing for others but it is natural to a point and deviations can be uite unhealthy In these stories it is evident and some have of this extreme compared to other characters So Huxley s characters seem so real yet with the exaggeration of some In thinking about who he reminds me of it is Irene Nemirovsky because her characters seem to show there bare self at timesWhat I found extremely fascinating is that Crome Yellow was written before The Brave New World and one character Mr Scogan talks about a society of the future with regards to a society controlling order Huxley was thinking of this and giving us a preview in many passages I will highlight one but if you want to see check out my highlights on page 1 and 2 of my notesIn vast state incubators rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it reuires The family system will disappear society sapped at its very base will have to find new foundations and Eros beautifully and irresponsibly free will flit like a gay butterfly from flower to flower through a sunlit worldCrome Yellow was written in 1921 but this passage I found very interesting post The Great War WW1 and years before the rise of HitlerThe spirit of Infidelity is the very spirit of German criticism The Higher Criticism as it is mockingly called denies the possibility of miracles prediction and real inspiration and attempts to account for the Bible as a natural development Slowly but surely during the last eighty years the spirit of Infidelity has been robbing the Germans of their Bible and their faith so that Germany is to day a nation of unbelievers Higher Criticism has thus made the war possible for it would be absolutely impossible for any Christian nation to wage war as Germany is waging itOnto the story Denis is going to visit Crome on a holiday with friends and mostly to see Anne who he loves but she is only his friend Her uncle is uite antisocial and her aunt is looking for the last fads in the spiritual world Jenny who is pretty much deaf but opens Denis eyes in a kind of self awakening There are other uirky characters like Scogan who has his ideas how society should run Many interesting characters which make this holiday uite strange In thinking about the ending it seemed so real and actually perfect It was not conclusive but I can see how it would play out later There is humor here and philosophy on life as well It was a worthwhile read IMOA must read for Huxley fans
