By Stefan

The Internet truly is a wondrous place. It gives us an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends,
find love via free singles dating sites, but most importantly, it allows us to lose ourselves; in the vast
ocean of breathtaking art. If you enjoy watching some of the popular movies and TV shows such as Black
Mirror, The Walking Dead, I Am Legend, and Blade Runner, you will definitely be interested in reading
these 5 amazing dystopian novels. Check out our top 5 list and see which one intrigues you the most.
We recommend them all!

5. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Yes, that new popular TV show with the same name was based on this masterpiece by Margaret
Atwood. This classic was originally published back in 1985 and it tells a heartbreaking story about a
dystopian world where women have absolutely no rights. It is a brutal and sad tale about a handmaid
named Offred who struggles to survive in the world completely dominated by men. It is a very powerful
and heavy read, so don’t be surprised if you get really emotional and angry.

4. Synanon Kid by C.A. Wittman
C.A. Wittman is a talented novelist who is inspired by dystopian worlds, dogmatic religion, corrupt
leaders and corporations, and secret pasts. She absolutely thrives on these ideas and her new novel,
Synanon Kid is an exhilarating story about a girl who was kidnapped during a visit to her uncle’s home in
Riverside Valley. She was abducted by two women, members of Synanon cult’s Kidsnatchers group. This
puzzling event changed her life forever. Synanon Kid is a dark, thought-provoking, and mysterious book
that certainly deserves to be on your bookshelf.

3. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
This brilliant book is a definite proof that Anthony Burgess was ahead of his time. As you probably
already know, this masterpiece inspired Stanley Kubrick to create a cult movie with the same name.
Anyway, this novel describes a very depressing dystopian future filled with countless ultra-violent gangs
who are terrorizing the entire England. The story is focused on a violent young man named Alex who is
the leader of his dreadful gang. After one of his "adventures" goes south, Alex gets himself arrested and
while doing his time in the prison, he becomes a subject of a new behavior modification experiment.

2. Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Unwind is a truly horrifyingly beautiful dystopian novel set in America after the civil war between Pro-
Life and Pro-Choice parties. As you probably guessed by now, it’s about abortion. After the war, two
factions managed to reach an agreement that guarantees a safe life for all the babies in the country.
However, the dark side of that covenant says that if these babies start causing problems when they
grow up, they have to be sent to an organ harvesting institution.

1. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro                                                                                                                  The innocent and rather careless beginning of this book may fool you, but you must never let your guard
down. This is a story about a young girl named Kathy who while attending a boarding school in England
finds herself in an awkward love triangle. However, as she grows older, Kathy and her friends start to realize that they are just pawns controlled by a dominant system. Their fate is being decided for them
while rebellion remains a distant dream.
