Found out our coursework task today and I'm so stressed we have to compare two novels one post and one pre-2000
Really not sure what I could compare
I would like to do something like rebecca and compare the gothic or supernatural or maybe 1984 Orwell and another disytopian novel. But I'm having a real difficulty finding some substantial literary novels that I can compare with as they have to be very highly prestigious novels but I have found the 2000s not to have many literary acclaimed novels?
Any thoughts of novels in 2000s I could use? Thanks

I could list a dozen novels post-2000, but I've not obviously going to do that... You need to decide on what topic you're going to focus on. Only then, myself and others can help you a bit more.

Anything by these novelists: Stephen King (Gothic/Horror/Suspense/Crime), Ian McEwan (drama/crime), Margaret Atwood (dystopian/presentation of women).

'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro is a good dystopian novel, and shortlisted for the Booker Prize

I would definitely go with Never Let Me Go as it is a great novel because has a lot of context behind it and it represents a dystopian society. You could also go with Frankenstein but it is a bit mundane.
