    After watching the last maze runner last night im on the mood for a new series to read.
    Ive read all the main ones...Hunger Games and Divergence.

    What can you recommend?

    Hi @Cathryes,
    From the top of my head, dystopia books I have read:
    • 1984 by G Orwell. Magnificent work although equally depressing.
    • Fahrenheit 451 by R Bradbury. Less challenging and oppressive than the above but very good work as well.
    • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by P.K. Dick. Very different from Blade Runner.
    • Silos trilogy by H. Howey. I really liked Wool. I found Shift boring, and Dust was entertaining enough. Mind you, people in this forum differ significantly about this series, so take my opinion for what it is worth...

    The Vagrant Trilogy by Peter Newman, which is now complete with the third book just released. Very popular new books and author.
