dystopia is like...the anti-utopia. The world the book is set in sort of strives to be perfect but usually through being highly controlled or repressed by the government, for example. Like THG and Divergent and Delirium etc. :]
i bought it and the 2nd one today! (buy one get one half price in whsmith!!) i'm only on the second chapter but already enjoying it! the last book i read was diary of a manhattan call girl. i picked it up thinking it was belle de jour. it was pretty boring so i'm excited for Divergent!
I'm not really enjoying 1984. It is too wordy. There is like no dialogue to break up the description. And nearly every sentence is written with a passive voice. There is no sentence variety at all. I don't know if I'll get through this one.
