"To produce a mighty book you must have a mighty theme." Herman Melville. The power of a theme is often overlooked, which is an issue. A mighty theme sticks with the reader for years after they read the book. It helps them to find themselves and their beliefs.
Dystopian Novels are some of the most complex novels, with death, destruction, and mayhem. Most dystopian novels are in the science fiction genre, but they also have subgenres, like romance, or horror. The defining element of a dystopian novel is the setting; they are set in a sad universe, with overcrowding, disease, or overall bad living conditions. Here are the 5 best:
"It's none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way." Ernest Hemingway. Writing is like a muscle, the more you work it, the better you are.

Fantasy books are some of the most imaginative literature in existence. They often take place in icy tundras or raging deserts. Many contain epic battles of countless men and women. Evil lords abound and fill the imagination with new, crazy ideas. Whether the story follows a single hero or an entire army, action is always present. Here are 5 of my favorite fantasy series:
I listened to His Majesty’s Dragon as an audiobook. It was the right decision. Simon Vance’s soothing voice was amazingly soft, and pleasant. The book itself takes a new approach to the dragons.

However, I can confirm after reading Old Man’s War, that it is not actually impossible. John Scalzi found a way to not only make an original story but also to create one of my new favorite characters.
