Maleka's Five Books of a Dystopian Nature

All of these books show glimpses (or huge perspectives) of where our world can go if we continue on paths of environmental destruction, war, and other sad and oppressing states. Another world is possible!

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (HarperCollins, $14.99)

[Note: Brave New World is also one of Maleka's April Picks and Erica's August 2010 Picks.]

1984 by George Orwell (Signet Classics, $9.99)

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic, $8.99)

[Note: The Hunger Games is also one of Maleka's October 2010 Picks and the basis for Kate's January 2011 Picks.]

The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman (Random House, $7.50, 11.95, or in omnibus form for $21.99)

Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy (Fawcett Books, $7.99)
