  • Fictional Story That Mimics Brave New World

    2146 words - 9 pages

    What is that infernal noise? It’s so quiet yet so irritatingly loud at the same time. I didn’t think trees were supposed to make sounds as they made oxygen. Oh yeah...these artificial crimson trees aren’t exactly the best things to stand next to when you want a little peace and quiet.

    The Zoo

    Introduction Many people who are well into their adulthood will certainly remember going to zoo when they were children.

There are some zoos, which still fit in these categories of trapping animals and exhibiting them in artificial environments. But this has faced a change in th
