I'm reading Brave new world as part of my english course. I have to say, it's a lot better than 1984. It's a very interesting idea, which I would in no way like to see become reality. I mean, a world without families and parents, where they condition you to believe you're in such a social class and are destined for such a life? That would be odd! I'm not very far into the book, but it's apparently meant to make everyone happy with the position they're in.
It's definitely better than the world put forward in 1984 (that was just scary) but I don't think it's possible to live somewhere perfect. There'd be flaws under the surface the "world controllers" would want everyone to see.
