Dystopian Books #AtoZChallenge
D is for Dystopia - I wanted to focus on the dystopian fad that has popped up somewhat recently and continues to gain popularity. I enjoy reading them very much, and based on blogs/instagram/twitter, I know that I am not the only one!
What are some things that make a story dystopian?
-I think the first and main thing is that their is some kind of government trying to take control, and in turn making life pretty miserable for those that are not involved with it. There is some force working against the people, and they have to decide if they are going to continue to live with it, or to try to over throw it. I do believe that this is part of why we enjoy them so much. We want to see the good guys win, at least I know that I do.
So, what do you think make dystopian novels so enjoyable? What are some of your favorite dystopian books?
