AH English Dissertation watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey everyone,
    I'm at the point where I have to decide upon the texts which I will be doing my dissertation on for Advanced Higher English. As it is worth 40% of the overall grade, I really want to get it right!! :P
    The topic I want to do is on the Dystopian genre, and how the novels explore the situation's effect on the Human Nature of the characters.
    I've read '1984' & I'm currently reading 'I Am Legend.' I'm already seeing some similarities, so all is going well.
    I was just wondering if anyone thinks 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy would be of a suitable reading level to also compare the others to? I was originally thinking 'Fahrenheit 451', but not sure how relevant it is to Human Nature?
