I like the end of the world.

Okay, let me rephrase that slightly. I like reading about the end of the world and watching movies based on the end of the world. Or movies and books based on the opposite of utopias.

Dystopias.

Dystopias are my lifeblood. I just love reading about worlds so different from our own (The Giver by Lois Lowry) that have just a small ring of truth about them (Jennifer Government by Max Barry).

And some that have more than a ring of truth - ones that you look outside your window and realise are happening before your eyes (1984 by George Orwell).

I plan on using this blog as part review part real world analysis.

Thank you for coming along on the ride.
