dys is how you do it

Want to play along?
1. Pick 3 (short challenge) or 5 (long challenge) dystopian novels or stories. I suggest checking out my Big List. Pick at least one I've read and reviewed, so we have something to talk about after.
2. Post your list here, with a link to the blog or site where you'll be reviewing/discussing those books.
3. Read 'em! Mull them over. Post up your thoughts. Come back here and leave a comment with a link to your post.
4. Try not to get too paranoid about the current state of the world.

That's it - have fun. Pass the word, if you know anyone who might want to get in on the project.

Righto, here's my list (a mixture of the short and slightly longer):

Pierre Boulle: The Planet of the Apes
Harlan Ellison: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream
Lois Lowry: The Giver
Walter M Miller, Jr: A Canticle for Leibowitz
John Wyndham: The Chrysalids

Good list! Which are you starting with?

Kylie said...

I guess I'll start with The Chrysalids. It's been on my list the longest!

Ok so I know its been a while, but I'm having trouble deciding what to read (and finding time to read with work and school and whatnot). I'm starting off with A Brave New World and once I review it on our blog I'll let you know and then tell you what I'm going to read next.

Great! That's a good one to start with - a classic of the genre. Let me know when you review it. I'll be interested to see your take.
