Novels set in dark and dangerous worlds where the authorities can not be trusted somehow manage to pique our imaginations. Dystopias, as they’re called, range from scary to downright disturbing and all serve to highlight aspects of our current society that could cause everything to go horribly, horribly wrong.
These books contain just enough of what is happening now to make us wonder, could it really happen? The authors access the readers’ darkest fears and make them into reality in ink. Marauding robots? Nuclear fallout? Teenagers fighting to the death? Zombies!!? If you or the author can think it into reality, these books will take you to a future world where it happened, and it went bad.
So if you have a hankering to fight zombies, battle robots, stop worldwide pandemics, or ponder what it could be like, check out our display in the library before it too, comes to an end too!
You can also get some pointers on how to survive in a Dystopia according to books from this article by Book Riot.
