In our third episode, we discuss young adult dystopian novels and their recent rise in popular culture. We look at these novels and their cinematic counterparts in terms of their impact on society, considering their frequent use of a female lead character, particularly in comparison to older, male-led dystopias.
The books discussed in this podcast are The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Divergent by Veronica Roth, Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman, Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill, The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness, and The Hybrid Chronicles by Kat Zhang.
