Can you please recommend me a dystopia book that's worth reading? Is for the Helmet challenge
Margaret Atwood: Handmaid’s Tale (1985)
Set in near-future, New England is known as a patriarchal, totalitarian state called the Republic of Gilead. Most women, especially poor ones, are forced to produce children for commanders and their wives as “handmaids”.
Don DeLillo: White Noise (1985)
A postmodern classic about a middle-class suburb family, airborne toxic event and suspicion. Lots of dialogue in this one! Noah Baumbach just made a hilarious movie based on this classic.
And a newer one:
Emily St. John Mandel: Station Eleven (2015)
Civilization has collapsed as a deadly virus conquered the whole world. A traveling symphony orchestra roams the waste lands and tries to find hope in art and humane relationships. One of the best novels I read last year!
