INFOGRAPHIC: Dystopian Fiction on Goodreads

Goodreads has created a dystopian fiction inforgraphic, mapping the popularity and variety of books published in this bleak genre. We’ve embedded part of the chart above, but you can follow this link to see the information-packed image.

The inforgraphic explores books about characters living with repressive governments, a genre that covers everything from The Hunger Games to 1984. Wikipedia has a handy primer and list that can help you find more books.

Check it out: “Dystopian fiction is more popular than it has been in more than 50 years. Whether it’s the result of political turmoil, global financial crises, or other anxieties, readers are craving books about ruthless governments and terrifying worlds. The new breed of dystopian novels combines classic dystopian themes of cruel governments and violent, restrictive worlds with a few new twists—badass heroines and romance.”
