Hi there!

Here's the latest article from the Literary Fiction site at BellaOnline.com.

Utopian vs Dystopian in Literary Fiction
We have heard quite a bit about Utopian and Dystopian Literature, and have oftentimes merged both categories as one. In this article we'll see differences between the two categories, evident in their definitions, but also in their plot and event descriptions.

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

"Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea."
--- Robert A. Heinlein


EDITOR RECOMMENDED BOOK

Delirium, by Lauren Oliver

This is a very intriguing, intoxicating thriller that you'll be glad you opened up. I never used to glance at books of this genre before, much less purchase it to read, but I can tell you this book has been added to my top 10 favorite reads of all time. It is a Utopian-based novel, but not at all SciFi-like or filled with 'futuristic' mumbo jumbos. No, I was very much impressed with Oliver's writing, and I would recommend this to anyone, even if books with futuristic themes are not usually their type of reads. It's supposedly geared towards YA, but it is solid enough for any adult reader. Believe me when I say you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to read the second book in the series, Pandemonium, and all the others that follow: Raquiem, and Annabel. Below is a link to Delirium on Amazon. Enjoy!

EDITOR RANDOM FUN ACTIVITY

Music. That's the theme of this week's random fun time. Buy your favorite band's latest CD. Go karaoke-ing with friends or just with your partner/spouse. Dance to your favorite jam in the privacy of your bedroom, or maybe in the middle of your living room. Sing your favorite song in the shower, or to your spouse, or children if you have any. Enjoy the melody that music provides, appreciate the art of rhythmic harmony that it is made up of, and appreciate the artistes and instrumentalists that bring it all together to make it what it is. Do it. This week.

Thank you for visiting LiteraryFiction.bellaonline.com; please do visit again for even more great content about Literary Fiction.

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends!

'Til next time,
