Ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with Science Fiction (Sci Fi) because I used to love (and still do) watching shows such as Doctor Who, Star Wars and Stargate. My obsession with this genre seems to have translated into my reading patterns and I find that I still search for a thrilling read.
I like anything involving time travel, aliens and futuristic themes. Two of my favourite science fiction novels are:
I think the main reasons why I love this genre is because it's so mind blowing and it's hard to wrap your head around all the different concepts. Especially in time travel books, because you don't know when's the now and what's going to cause this effect and everything is just a massive race to see who can figure it out first. Also I love reading all the futuristic themes because I always wonder whether life will actually turn out like this!
Although the thing with genres is that there's never a clear line between them. Dystopia and Sci Fi I think get mixed up from time to time. Dystopia is meant to be a society where everything is bad and often has a corrupt government. Although dystopian society sometimes has futuristic themes so you never know what to call it. Dystopia is also often set in the future but the whole thing of it being a completely created place by the author is what makes it dystopian. But yet isn't sci fi also imagined???
So that's my small discussion on why I love Sci Fi! Be sure to check out Sunny's page because she doesn't agree with me! Isn't she crazy!!! Or do you agree with her?
