Favorite Dystopias
« on: June 15, 2010, 10:32:14 AM »

Many of the best new books and series are dystopias, including Uglies.  What are some of your favorite dystopias?(besides Uglies)
Mine are: The Hunger Games, The Giver, The Maze Runner.

I like Shades of Grey, The Barcode Tattoo, and EVA

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Bar code tatoo + Bar code rebellion = awesome.
(not as good as the Uglies series though)

Oh I just saw Shades of Grey in the bookstore the other day it sounded so good. I'll have to get it then. and Dystopia is like the opposite of utopia. You know when everything is like perfect it's like that but instead of perfect it all turns out  to be messed up.

Ohh...

The only dystopia I've read is Uglies and that's the best books in the WHOLE FREAKING UNIVERSE!

OK I figured most of you had read them. It would be pretty hard for an Uglies fan to resist the Hunger Games. Revolutionary but in a different way than Uglies.

Another good dystopia is the Gone Series by Michael Grant. They are brilliant.
