Video | 21 Dystopian Books that will make you dread the future

Dystopian books transport us into a world that does not exist but could transpire a generation or two down the line. Not to mention, this world from the future is dark and unpleasant. People are dehumanized by the acts of torture and systemic oppression.

  1. I’m just seeing this now. SUCH a classy video, with the perfect music for dystopia. Thank you for everything you put into this. I’ll be running over to goodreads soon to look up some of these books (while counterintuitively attempting to wean myself away from my electronic device 🤔)
