Correct response: What is Brave New World?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Brave New World is Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel satirising some of the utopian works of H. G. Wells. Around the time of its publication, many lived in fear of losing individual identity, and parts of Brave New World played on that, including the fact that in the World State of the novel, only 10,000 last names are in use.
The calendar in Brave New World, instead of AD (Anno Domini), is labeled AF (After Ford), dating from the October 1908 introduction of the Model-T Ford. The novel opens in AF 632 (AD 2540).
