English term or phrase: dystopian novel
Definition from Robert Harris - VirtualSalt:
An anti-utopian novel where, instead of a paradise, everything has gone wrong in the attempt to create a perfect society. See utopian novel. Examples: * George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four * Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Example sentence(s):
  • Written by Stephen King under the penname of Richard Bachman, “The Running Man” is a fantastic dystopian novel about a frightening future where ratings and entertainment takes form in a man hunt, and where even the “winners” are losers. Jamie Frater
  • Anthony Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange" is one of the most artfully crafted dystopian novels ever penned, rivaled only by Jack Womack's "Random Acts of Senseless Violence." Mac Tonnies
  • In every dystopian novel, the individual is of little, if any consequence, the desire being for uniformity within society. BBC
