When Mockingjay - Part 2 came out, I expected the world of The Hunger Games to be wrapped up and set aside. That is simply what happens when the story is over and there is no more content to create.

Although The Giver was only published in 1993, the novel truly defined what a (dare I say) perfect dystopia would look like, starring a true utopia.
