Since I read Fahrenheit 451 my freshman year of high school, I have deeply enjoyed reading dystopian literature. The best part is that there is so much dystopian literature out there, I get tired of reading them before I run out of books to read. Most of the dystopian books that I read are “classics” - Bradbury, Huxley, Atwood, etc.- but I recently came across a debut novel with a plot that caught my attention. I’ve never read A Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood, but I’m told that this book is similar in nature - it just has a different twist.
They Don’t Make Plus Size Spacesuits is a collection of sci-fi/dystopian stories that take people’s theories and ideas about fat people and show what would happen if these were taken to extremes.
Oops! We read an open-ended dystopian novel that leaves a TON of things open to interpretation, and it turns out... It’s the first in a trilogy.
