This had some fun stories. I love dystopians and enjoyed all of these short stories. I had just a few problems with this anthology.

1) The weird range of stories made me confused. Having Voltaire and Jack London and Mary Shelley in a book with very modern dystopian young adult writers was off-putting as the reader. As great and important as Thomas More’s Utopia is, I don’t think it has a place with a modern lesbian love story about gods and social media/reputation in the 21st century.

2) Not all

I loved that it was a mix of old and new stories. But issue though was that the older ones tended to be so much longer than the newer one. Not short stories, but usually sections from novels. Which isn’t bad, I know there aren’t a lot of older short stories, especially dystopian in nature, but I loved a lot of the newer ones and wish they could have gone on longer.

I really loved this book. It has the perfect balance between utopias and dystopias. I loved the act that they included classical authors and modern authors, some authors only have blog stories, others are well known like Mary Shelly or Thomas Moore. It took years for me to finish it because it’s huge, but it’s trully worth it. I really recommend it.

I picked out a few favorite stories from this book, but I liked all of them. I love the dark twists and the originality of the stories.

Well, there are many stories in here. Most of them are pretty good. It's a large book and that makes it last a while. Some of the stories were predictable. The Utopia story, by Thomas More, on what all the rest have been based on, was a difficult read. I mean, it was written in the 1500's so, there's that. Run on sentences and some confusion as to who was speaking. Anyway, there were other great short stories. ...more
