In many ways, George Orwell’s 1984 has become the benchmark by which all other dystopians are judged. And for the readers who loved the tale of Winston versus ‘Big Brother,’ they are always looking for books that can compare in some way. Here are a few books I‘ve come across recently that have so...

I really wanted this to be a good movie, cos I’m a fan of Gemma Arteton and cos the premise of the film is so promising (like the Supernatural TV series really). Sadly, the characterisation is less than two-dimensional and there are no moral dilemmas in the film whatsoever. What you see is what y...
