I didn’t know Dystopian literature was a thing until about three years ago when I heard it on the television. I was like: what’s that? anti-utopian?
Why, yes, thank you Google, that’s exactly what it means.
You see, I had been reading and enjoying Dystopian literature without actually knowing it was a genre. I mean, how many times did you masturbate before you learned there was a word for it, am I right?
Ironically, the stories usually seem to take place in a utopia. But when you keep reading, you’re like: Oh, that’s definitely not perfect, and so the intrigue continues.
Here are my favorite Dystopian books:
But, there were books, classics I read and adored early on, that might have introduced me to the concept to begin with.
Yes, I read it in French.
There are so many Dystopian novels, and they are all, as far as I’ve read, really, really good.
Anyway, I’ve come to find that Sassy enjoys Dystopian literature as well, since she read the Divergent series and Matched. I’m enthusiastic about all the hypothetical discussions we’ll be having. *rubs hands together*
Tell me, have you read any of these? Do you have a favorite Dystopian book?
