50/50 Friday - Dystopian World You'd Want to Live In/Not Live In


What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let me know!

Topic for the Week
Dystopian World You'd Want to Live In/Not Live In


So every dystopian world I can think of is pretty bad but I kept digging and found one that wouldn't be too bad... well compared to the others that pop into my head at least.

Dystopian World I'd Never Want to Live In


I mean that fear! Sure, once you reach a certain age you're free and clear but what about your kids, your nieces and nephews, cousins? I mean, the worry would never end unless you were lucky enough to live in the capital...


Dystopian World I'd Live In


I know this world is bad too, again, every single one I could think of was bad, but this one seemed the least bad? I mean, if you are a higher number than life is better... Yep. I fully choose this world. 

Topic For Next Week
Character Most/Least Likely to Commit Grand Theft Auto

  1. THG was my choice too - there were a lot to choose from at least! ;)

  2. Hunger Games was my choice for a Hard Pass as well.

    1. Yeah, the overwhelming consensus is that the world of The Hunger Games is freaking terrible.

  3. I honestly never thought of dystopian worlds this way. I suppose one that hit me as hardest was The Road by Cormac McCarthy and the one where I felt the most comfortable(?) would be Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel.

    1. I've heard of The road and I would have to agree! That would be a hard world to live in.

  4. This is a fascinating question! For me I think Blindness by Jose Saramago would possibly be the one I'd least want to live in. The Project Renova series has aspects I could enjoy living - the Lindisfarne community at its height, for example - and parts of Farm Land by Gemma Lawrence are almost idyllic :-)

    1. That's true! At it's height, that would be a wonderful place to live!

  5. This reminds me of when people always ask me what fantasy world I'd like to live in and honestly, while it'd be great to live in a fantasy or dystopian world as one of the 'special' people, more than likely, I'd end up being one of the cogs in the machine that have awful lives! The Selection world is definitely one of the 'bad but not awful' ones :)
