Top 5 Dystopic Novels

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.

Why do you write and why did you decide to write a blog?

I write because it’s my way of expressing myself, it’s what I love to do and what I’m passionate about. I decided to blog because I always knew I wanted to be a writer but wasn’t really doing much about it and I felt kind of stuck so I decided to start blogging as a way to start writing for a larger audience.

My Week In Review

Sunday:

Turns out I couldn’t find my passport and after freaking out a little I realised I had forgotten it in the Bank. So unfortunately the bank wasn’t open till Tuesday because of Labour Day on Monday so I was kind of screwed.

Monday:

I had went to the orientation for international students at Brock. This was the first time I saw the University and it was huge! And yes I got lost a lot! I made some cool friends who seem really interesting and awesome!

Tuesday:

Went to the bank and got my passport back!! Yayyyy! Had Taco Bell which I’m kind of obsessed with right now!

Wednesday:

Got prepared for my first day at university by buying a bunch of stationery and notebooks at the dollar store! It was way more interesting than it sounds…

Thursday:

Had my first set of classes (Philosophy, Sociology and Earth Science!). They were super interesting and my teachers seem super smart and super interesting! Finally got my ID and Bus Pass! Made a friend!

Friday:

Had Psychology at 1. It was soooooo amazing I can not wait for the class to really start teaching! I just love Psychology so much!! Made another friend and saw a cute cat too! Also found a cool thrift store with second hand books!

I also checked out the clubs offered at my university and am deciding what to join.

Pen Over People (Guest Post)

She prefers the pen in her hand,

over the company of the people.

The pen never yells or screams,

Instead it leads to wonderful worlds.

It unleashes her creativity.

It is her weapon and they better beware.

Leona Petrovic (aka inkgirlwords) really does prefer the company of a pen over people. Her blog (https://inkgirlandwords.wordpress.com/) is the child of her creativity and features a lot of poetry and stories, including other posts. She aspires to be an author and is working on a novel.
