19 Books You Wish There Were Sequels To
we really love a novel, we can't just let it go at "the end."

We Love It: 1984 (published in 1949)
wasn't the original dystopian novel, but it certainly raised the bar,
introducing the terms Big Brother, doublethink
and thoughtcrime. Its themes of government
surveillance and the abuse of power are, unfortunately, still relevant.
Sequel: So which of our sharpest writers dares to give us
2051? Margaret Atwood, we nominate you.
