Nathanimal Does dystopian count as apocalyptic?


message 6: by Brian (new)

Brian Nate wrote: "Does dystopian count as apocalyptic?"

My opinion is that dystopian is separate from apocalyptic, although they overlap frequently.
My examples from Stephen King:
The Stand - both dystopian and apocalyptic.
The Dark Tower - dystopian but not apocalyptic, well it may be apocalyptic depending on POV of the character. For Rowland, yes it is apocalyptic, but for Jake and Eddie (and others) it is some kind of parallel universe.

Just my opinion.


message 8: by Lisa (new)

Lisa James The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan talks about the end of days, the final battle, etc. This should be included although it also considered epic fantasy.


message 9: by Igor (new)

Igor I Am Legend, Earth Abides, Day by Day Armageddon, 1984 and One Second After. These books are epic.


message 10: by Josie (new)

message 14: by Katie (new)

Katie Great list... I added like 20 books to my list!

Also, 1984 is the best book I've ever read I recommend it to anyone who has a week or so and wants a great dystopian novel


message 15: by Dolly (new)

Dolly Great list. I've added some more to my "read me" list. I've always said that I'm a coward and want to be at ground zero in case of apocalypse. People look at me weird and then I explain it to them.
