To Orwell Today,

I just finished reading "The Handmaidís Tale", and I was wondering if you have a list of other distopias you recommend reading?

Greetings Brian,

I have never read "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood but I've expressed my thoughts about the book to an earlier reader. Since then I've rented the video and found it very boring.

The most recent dystopian movie I've watched, and would recommend, is THE ISLAND. I have the book it was based on, ie THE EXPERIMENT by John Darnton, although I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Other dystopian movies I recommend, just off the top of my head, are THEY LIVE and GATTACA.

All the best,
Jackie Jura

PS - If you liked "The Handmaid's Tale" don't be shy explaining why.
