Choose Your Ruined Future with the Literary Dystopia Quiz

We’ve said it before, but this is an apocalyptic summer.

Between Justin Cronin‘s vampire end-of-the-world scenario to Glenn Beck‘s liberal end-of-the-world scenario (watch the book trailer embedded above), authors around the country are imagining some grim futures. To celebrate, Flavorpill has created a “Which Dystopian Future Is Right For You?” quiz to help you find the best dystopian fiction to read on the beach.

Here’s an excerpt: “With Gary Shteyngart’s newest contribution to the genre, Super Sad True Love Story, out later this month, we got to thinking about the doomsday options we have to look forward to. So take control of humanity’s bleak horizon by figuring out which hellish future is best for you — because if there’s anything we’ve learned from dystopian literature, it’s that your preferences matter. Or, not.”
