message 1: by Ðɑηηɑ (new)

Ðɑηηɑ Removed: City of Bones because it's not dystopian.


message 2: by Pamela (new)

Pamela Another great one is " Fire Country" by David Estes. It's one of the great ones :)


message 3: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Kesselring Touching Spirit Bear #261 is survival. It is definitely not dystopian.


message 4: by Nacho (new)

Nacho Buisan Hercina wrote: "Removed: City of Bones because it's not dystopian."
True, it is a YA book, yet it is not a dystopian book.


message 5: by Dawn (new)

Dawn A Tale of Two Cities? Great story but not for this list.


message 6: by Juju (new)

Juju Bateman Tremor by Ryan Mark - It's by a new author, but it definitely packs a punch when considering the big contenders in this genre. A great Dystopian novel, well worth checking out.


message 7: by Valerie (new)

Valerie WHY is Mario Puzo's "Godfather" on this list???


message 8: by Allie (new)

Allie Kristina All mortal instruments novels don't belong on this list, they are not dystopian.


message 9: by Ashlea (new)

Ashlea Maximum Ride isn't dystopian either.


message 10: by Ashlea (new)

Ashlea Neither is Miss Peregrines.


message 11: by Sarah Marie (new)

Sarah Marie World War Z is fantastic but not YA.
Animal Farm is fantastic, a fable, and yes has talking animals, but also not YA.
Swan Song, about as YA adult as King's The Stand: so not - but very good.
MacAddam trilogy, excellent, but not YA.
Of Mice and Men and Catch 22 neither dystopian nor YA
And The Godfather, seriously?
Heinlein and Rand aren't YA either.
Brave New World, not YA
Need to make this list YA dystopian or just dystopian - and take out those weird oddballs.


message 12: by Konstantina (new)

Konstantina Kalimeri I think Metro 2033 should be on this list
