Catherine Thorpe | 7 comments Hi guys
I know this may be a tall order but can anyone recommend to me a dystopian novel that is full of action and adventure which isn't a trilogy? I would just like to enjoy the one off read. thank you

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 1040 comments Gosh, I can't think of a single one! It's crazy to think that's such a hard request to fill! Sorry :(

Nowadays having everything in just one book with what you want is not very common.

1984 has action + adventure and is just one book!

Action may be a tad low though...

Yes it is! The Scorpio Races is one of my favorite books EVER! I consider it to be semi-dystopian, but many people have argued to me that it's not, so I didn't include it. But I HIGHLY recommend The Scorpio Races!

Elena Maddox (lanie7311) | 3 comments Good I'm so glad! It's sitting on my lap right now and I'm starting it today!

Sahiba Kaur Badyal (sahibab) | 2 comments Maybe you would like 1984 by George Orwell. I am not entirely sure that it is dystopian (just started reading it myself), but when I was searching up good dystopian books that was number four on Google's list. I am pretty sure it is only one book, and it is a little old fashioned, but I'm sure you will like it.

Sahiba Kaur Badyal (sahibab) | 2 comments Also The Enemy series seems really good. My Mum just got it for me today and I cannot wait to read it!


message 12: by David (new)

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 1040 comments Those both sound good!
