The AbeBooks newsletter this week is all about dystopias! Some I knew well, others I had never heard of but now, of course, want to read. Enjoy!

Great list, thank you for sharing! I've also picked up a few unfamiliar titles to add to my TBR :]

Earth Abides is a classic :)

Sophie | 3 comments Great list! Definitely some new ones I’ll be sticking in my TBR pile/mountain!

Hákon Gunnarsson | 36 comments Interesting list, but Slaughterhouse 5 is hardly a dystopian novel, is it?

Becoming a zoo exhibit for an alien species might count as dystopic, I suppose. But all in all no, I'd say not.

Hákon Gunnarsson | 36 comments You’re right Michele, becoming a zoo exhibit for an alien species is dystopic, but if they wanted to put Vonnegut on this list Player Piano would have been a better choice because that one is a dystopia. Perhaps they didn’t put it there because it is not as good a novel as Slaughterhouse 5.

I picked up Earth Abides at a library book sale. I made it through it....just.
