Today’s question: What genre do you really want to read more of?
Dystopian fiction

– Considering i did my undergraduate degree dissertation on the subject of how realistic utopia is to create, and looking at dystopia as the opposite to a utopian world, i really didnt read enough into the subject. My main books were “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood, “1984” by George Orwell, “Herland” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and “Utopia” by Thomas More, and i didn’t really read much else.

I love dystopian fiction, and i really want to read more books on the subject, such as “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, “The Children of Men” by PD James, and “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.

As it’s 2012 next year, and the year when the Mayans supposedly predict the world will end, dystopian fiction and films will inevitably become popular, and i want to be a step ahead!
