Post 2 of 2 (see below)

Megabooks I was thinking about using The Circle for #booked2019 #socialmediafocus, but I can‘t decide since I haven‘t liked some of his other books. @Cinfhen Did you like it, Barbara? 2w
Cinfhen I did not like The Circle @Megabooks but others did. It didn‘t work as dystopian for me and I thought the MC was a dishrag!!!! 2w

Megabooks @Cinfhen That sounds like a Dave Eggers MC! 😂😂 2w
BarbaraBB @Megabooks I liked the first part, then it spun a bit out of control imo. But it has its strong points and describes a really possible (and scary) scenario for our future. I‘d give it a try if I were you! 2w

@Megabooks @Cinfhen

I was scrolling through my LIbraryThing tag ‘dystopia‘ because of Meg‘s post about The Handmaid‘s Tale and found so many good ones. Thought I‘d share them with you (post 1 of 2).

Somehow I love dystopian novels even though I‘m no fan of SF, fantasy or YA. Recommendations are welcome - as always 💕

Jason7 Severance by Ling Ma. It‘s a bit different, and that‘s what I liked about it. 2w
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing 💋 2w
Cinfhen I‘ve heard about that one @Jason7 thanks for putting it back on my radar 2w

Jason7 👍🏼 Maybe you‘ll like it. 2w
Megabooks Barbara! Thank you so much!! @Jason7 That‘s on my radar!! 2w
Jason7 👍🏼 oh, and If you like Atwood and haven‘t read The Maddaddam trilogy, maybe give that a try. I liked it better than Handmaids. Plus, there‘s 3 of them. 2w
CarolynM I'm not really into dystopia but the Chaos Walking trilogy is really excellent even if it is technically YA 2w
BarbaraBB @Jason7 That‘s one I‘ve been meaning to read too! 2w
BarbaraBB @CarolynM I need to check that one out, there‘s no blurb on Litsy! 2w
CarolynM I don't like fantasy or sci-fi much either, I had to fight my reaction to the sci-fi element at first, but the thing is, it means there's no way of avoiding the moral dilemmas the story raises. 2w
BarbaraBB @CarolynM That‘s indeed what appeals to me in dystopia too! Thank you! 2w
Lcsmcat I agree with @jason7, plus you should check out 2w
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I think I remember you loving this one. Isn‘t it dystopian as well? 2w
Liz_M I loved the tagged book both times I read it. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic world but is really about survival and the father-son relationship. 2w
Liz_M Another favorite, read for a women's study class in college, is 2w
BarbaraBB @Liz_M I have read The Road but I‘ll definitely check out the other one! How is the moving going? 2w
fleeting Have you read this one? I loved it. 5d
