“Hipsters shouldn’t breed”

Posted on: June 15, 2010

…what my good friend Raincoaster said when I informed her that the most interesting link today to this blog was the result of a search for “dystopian poems for kids”.

Seriously, folks.  Children don’t want to read dystopian literature any more than they want to read poetry.

But I know I’m wrong. The Giver by Lois Lowry is unrelenting in its popularity, despite being a dystopia (and now they’re making a movie of it?)

What are your favourite dystopian novels?

The Hunger Games trilogy by Susan Collins is a dystopia that is extremely well thought out. I truly enjoyed reading it
