I Never Knew I Loved Dystopian Stuff

I had no idea about this whole dystopian thing but recently I bought a book I found interesting and Amazon had it tagged as dystopian. So I looked it up and it means:

Often futuristic society that has degraded into a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian. Dystopian literature has underlying cautionary tones, warning society that if we continue to live how we do, this will be the consequence. A dystopia, thus, is regarded as a sort of negative utopia and is often characterized by an authoritarian or totalitarian form of government. 

So, books like The Hunger Games is an example. Movies like I, Robot, AI, 12 Monkeys, Gattaca, Battle Royale, Minority Report, etc Those are all examples and I love that stuff. Oh, I forgot A Handmaid's Tale (book and movie). So now I have a new favorite genre. BTW, I'm reading is Matched. I am loving is so far!
