I love a good dystopian novel. I mean, LOVE. Dystopian is, by far, my favorite genre. These books make me think hard about where society is headed, and about whether I like it or want to go a different way. They make me think about who I am, and what I stand for. They help me to define myself. And, perhaps strangely, I find them to be rather affirming. (I might have some issues with questioning authority and some control-freak tendencies going on there. Just maybe.)
So, let's talk good dystopians! Some of my faves are:
even I am on Twitter? And when I'm not online, I wonder what information I'm missing out on? Look out, guys: The Feed is coming.
There are more, of course, but these are the ones I'd take with me to a deserted island if I could. (Which makes it sound like I would WANT to go to a deserted island... Which, come to think of it, I might. Peace and quiet and sunshine and ocean, anyone?)
How about you? What are your favorite dystopians? And if you hate the genre, what is your favorite genre?
