I read The Hunger Games series well after it became a hit, wondering what the hype was about. I think I can safely say that it was the first real dystopian novel I've read. I loved it, and am curious now to read other titles. Your library (and others') have given me some great ideas to add to my reading list. Is there any particular book that you would recommend reading next? Or one that you would recommend to someone who is relatively new to this genre?
I also love a good dystopian novel. Have you ever read Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood? If not it is amazing. It has both a literary and classic feel that you may really enjoy.
If you haven't read it, Brave New World is excellent. Out of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451, I'm tempted to say that 1984 is my favorite, although Fahrenheit 451 brings about some very interesting and important ideas.

Also, if you have an afternoon free, read The Giver. It's a children's book, but it is an excellent quick dystopian read.
