Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Worlds I Hope Never Exist

Top Ten Tuesday (originally created by The Broke and the Bookish) is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl

Since I did my own Bookish Thought post on other worlds from books that I wish I could travel to, I figured I could go the other way with this Top Ten Tuesday topic. So with this week’s prompt, I’m going to list the fictional worlds from books that I would never want to visit or ones that I hope never come into existence.

The Worlds

Panem in The Hunger Games trilogy

Pretty easy to decision to include this one.

Post-Apocalyptic world in Gunslinger Girl

I totally loved this world, but only in fiction.

The world during the year 30000 in The Sky is Yours

For future generation’s sake, I hope this world never happens.

The World in general in the Fallen World trilogy

Does not sound fun at all unless you live remotely and maybe not even then.

The Republic of Gilead in The Handmaid’s Tale

I doubt it would happen, but still wouldn’t be fun.

The World in The Great Library trilogy

To not be able to own your own books? To have knowledge carefully controlled and even restricted or censored? No thank you.

The Technological Future in Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson

I think we rely on technology and have smart technology too embedded in our lives. This book made me scared.

Society in The Circle

I definitely hope that people do not become more like Mae (at least any more that we already are).


I guess I could only come up with eight worlds. There are many more that I would love to experience rather than not experience it seems. The biggest themes for me is that I hope that a apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic world does not come to fruition as well as hoping that a technological world where we cannot do anything without technology, where it becomes dangerous also does come close to happening.

What are some worlds that you would never visit or hope never happen? What are some that you would like to see?

  1. Brave New World, 1984, F451, Divergent for starts—wherever the government is too controlling. I’m not keen on pre-penicillin time periods either, which would rule out most of my fave books like Jane Eyre and Austen.
