Ever feel like your life is just a little bit… off? Sure, you’ve been led to believe that the way your society functions is normal – but who defines “normal,” anyway? Take a look around and stop by Nocturnal Book Reviews today for “5 Signs You *Might* Be Living in a Dystopia” (and an e-book giveaway!). Here’s the first tip to get you started:
1. “WHATEVER, I DO WHAT I WANT…” NOT! This one is a little tricky because every dystopian society has its own rules, but one tell-tale sign of a dystopia is that its citizens are rarely empowered to go where they want and do what they want whenever they want. Read a book? Only if it’s not censored. Fall in love? Only with your government-sanctioned match. Spend the day in the woods? Got to get past that electrified fence first! If you find yourself running into red tape, locked gates, or heavily armed futuristic guards whenever you do something outside the norm, this is probably a bad sign.
Swing by Nocturnal Book Reviews for the rest, and remember to enter the giveaway while you’re there!
