    What is your favorite dystopian novel?

    I actually have two favorite dystopian series: Divergent and The Hunger Games. Both of them kept me flipping the pages (and made me lose lots of sleep, ha ha!). They each had a great love story and tons of suspense from their female leads facing challenges that seemed insurmountable. Stories like these can change your perspective on life.

    Two - 1984, Orwel
    Brave New World, Huxley
    BNW - dessed up as a utopia, but really a dystopia.

    Hunger Games, Enclave, Divergent are among my top favorties.  Also loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth (dystopian but more zombie).  Matched is good also but it is more of a utopian society that isn't quite what it seems.

      I didn't like Matched, but it was surely the best Dystopian society that I've read in a long time. I'm planning on reading Crossed, but it's with some hesitance.

      I have to admit Matched or the other two in the trilogy were not my favorites.  But the second book heads out in the outer lands and there is more action. Lauren Oliver's Delirium Trilogy is great too.

    That is my favorite genre of books so I have a few.

    1984 - George Orwell
    Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
    Animal Farm - George Orwell
    Anthem - Ayn Rand
    Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

    If I had to choose an absolute favorite it would be A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

      Lord of the Flies! So many people disagree as to whether that is a dystopian novel, but I contend that it is. Very nice!
