1984 by George Orwell...should be required reading for everyone!

The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. :)

All the men are dead and there is only Yorick, his monkey and a world of women. The female population has to learn to rebuild society and survive without any male species (this includes animals). This graphic novel series was really interesting and lots of volumes to devour.

This fantastic novel set in an alternate universe 1990s England reveals the horror of a society that clones young people for a nefarious end purpose, with those young persons attending a private school unaware of their ultimate purpose. Made into an excellent movie - both the book and movie are highly recommended!

A bold vision of the future (or alternative present) by Phillip K. Dick. A dystopian story that inspired another cult classic: Blade Runner.

Yes, this is very dystopian and a movie made out of it with Harrison Ford.

Movies were good but books are always better

Smoke and Iron,
by Caine, Rachel

A dystopian book written in the '30s of the last century, which continues being relevant today.

It has been two years since the Simian virus wiped out humanity. With only a tenth of the population remaining, the civilization of man is no more!

George Orwell

The Giver By Lois Lowry

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

The post-apocalyptic science fiction series consists of 3 books - Wool, Shift and Dust (+ some extra short stories).

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Classic and interesting take on a controlling State in the future and reliance on technology in an emotionally unhealthy world.

Hunger Games

The Chrysalids, by John Wyndham. "Genetic fundamentalism" and persecution of abnormality. Such a great read! Was my first experience of dystopian literature years ago.

Un autre roman dystopique que l’on retrouve à la bibliothèque est Hunger Games de Suzanne Collins.

my son is reading his novel at school this year!

Always love a good YA novel. Even though this author got a bad start with her vampire romance, this novel showed her ability to create a dystopian world, along with some romance.

all three books are quite dystopian.

Post-apocalyptic fiction's a subgenre of dystopian fiction, right?

A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick (one of my favourite sci-fi writers!)

The Running Man (by Stephen King writing as Richard Bachman)

Good luck to everyone!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
