Due to the craziness and dysfunction in our society, at the moment, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, I would say we are in a Dystopian society. I would say this because of the fact that this time frame is considered bad, this is considered an event that nobody wants to be in and nobody could really predict. In order for me to properly narrate this story I would use third person, and past tense language. I would use this type of language because the pandemic did not just effect me, this is affecting almost everyone across the globe. I would use past tense because well, I would be telling the story in the future. I would also use things like similes and metaphors to help the people I'm explaining this story to, understand. Using those methods of figurative language allows the listener to understand what the speaker is trying to explain by comparing something they would already know to something they may not know. I also might use personification as a way of explaining the COVID-19 virus. I might say something like "the virus picked and chose which men and women to infect". Using this method may help others understand what the virus was like.
One of my favorite book series of all time is the maze runner series. During the timeframe in which these books took place they are living in a dystopian society. They were trapped in a maze under the impression that this was their life and everyone else was living the same life, when in reality they were apart of an experiment. This book, which was later turned into a movie, had all types of genres. Some of them included romance, action and suspense. Each of these genres was shown so well throughout the book. It was a book that I read in two days because I could not put it down. I enjoyed the books because they always kept me guessing and surprised me when I was given answers. This book could be seen as an allegory for many things like someone trapped in their mind or mental illness. There is so many different ways to look at this book and each of them are amazing.
