One of the most fascinating subjects in film and literature for me is dystopia, or more precisely the scenario of the depopulated earth. The more we study this topic, the more we realize that there is an amazing amount of material, of every imaginable quality, and of every decade of the last 100 years.

We have discovered many of the recommended films and books only after a long research. The interested person we provide with this list a clear summary. On a detailed evaluation and categorization, we consciously renounce, too different are requirements that can be placed on books of this genera. As you watch movies online free you will be able to find the best options there.

Dystopian books

1984 (George Orwell)

It is probably the world’s most famous dystopian plant. The highly political history describes the life of Winston Smith in a totalitarian surveillance and prevention state in 1984. Not only the quotes from the book, the book title itself has long become almost overused keyword. However, this does not change the genius of the work, the compulsory entry into the topic of dystopia.

Great solo for Anton (Herbert Rosendorfer)

Anton L., who, according to the author, is a rather long, complicated name with the initial letter L, hence the abbreviation), woke up one morning and all the people disappeared. The clothes they wore last are on the spot, but their owners are missing. In the form of satire unfamiliar to this genre, Rosendorfer writes a novel that is both curious and entertaining.

The world without us (Alan Weisman)

What if, without war, without disaster, just from one moment to the next, all people disappear from the earth? This is the central and exciting question that Alan Weisman poses in his now very popular non-fiction book.

DMZ (Brian Wood)

There is a ceasefire in the second American Civil War, and the DMZ, the demilitarized zone, is located in the middle of Manhattan between the two fighting parties. A helicopter crash brings Matthew Roth into the middle of the scene of this highly recommended comic book series – if you like comics.

The sinking of the city of Passau (Carl Amery)

In the year 131 post pestilenziam rule war between Passau and the Rosmern, the inhabitants of Rosenheim. The trigger for this lies some 100 years in the past, it is the visit of “Baba” Lois and Matti at the Scheff of Bassau. Two post-apocalyptic cities, two systems and the end is inevitable.

The beauty of that distant city (Ronald Wright)

1999: shortly before the new millennium, HG Wells’ time machine returns. Dr. David Lambert learns of it and reasons as a result of a difficult love triangle between him, his muse and his (former) best friend he boards the capsule. This brings him to London in the year 2500, the city is abandoned and destroyed under a jungle and Lambert begins a journey to the north. Striving profoundly, but not unsettling.

The Flight of the Ants (Ulrich C. Schreiber)

The geologist Gerhard Böhm encounters strange structures in the earth crust in the Eifel. In geological terms immediately afterwards, a volcano erupts in Germany for the first time in 12,000 years. The place is extremely unfavorable, because escaping lava increasingly clogs the course of the Rhine and leads to what is probably the biggest crisis in the Federal Republic. Schreiber’s end-time novel and first work is certainly not a masterpiece and nothing lasting, but an interesting approach and quite entertaining.
