Debatably, George Orwell became widely known as the man who started the dystopian culture in literature, as he discusses depictions of a totalitarian government in his notable literary works, such as “Animal Farm” in 1945 and “Nineteen Eighty-Four” in 1949.
Although Aldous Huxley came in first with his “Brave New World” in 1932 that also touches a bit of totalitarianism, Orwell clearly illustrated and mentioned a world of dystopia due to autocracy or despotism.
In the contemporary world, “The Hunger Games” book series of Suzanne Collins is a real, perfect example of a good read totalitarian dystopian novel that will always get mentioned in this category.
While I’m at it, I’ve decided to share with you a smattering number of books that I’ve loved with totalitarian dystopian themes, apart from the ones I mentioned earlier.
