I'm pretty sure it is, it's just not the focus and only lingers in the background since that is mostly irrelevant information during the story (except at the very beginning and end).

Just pointing it out that both novels share some similarities. I personally enjoyed both of them greatly.

Now we just gotta get ourselves some Soylent Green hype for dystopia.

A Clockwork Orange was hardly about dystopia. A Clockwork Orange was Anthony Burgess expressing his anger and emotional grief after his wife was raped in the form of a book. He himself didn't like the book very much as it took him a short time to write, and felt it was just a bunch of violence-porn, and was really disappointed that out of all of his works, it was the book that defined his career and legacy.

The whole interpretation of it being about a dystopia where the government strips a man of his choice is also kind of lost when you realize the main character is a murderous, rapist son of a bitch who gets let free at the end (by the same government) rather easily, with virtually no further punishment for all his crimes as they fix the treatment, and the only reason he doesn't repeat his violence is because he gets bored and decides to change his life. And that chapter wasn't even in the first American release.

But despite the backstory, it can still be considered a dystopian novel. It takes place in a different but parallel world to ours with a few major changes.

Lord of the Flies is set in a dystopian world too.

Yeah but it's not the same dystopian trope that every other book uses. So it was different.

Take this into consideration: It's misrepresenting statistics to prove a point incorrectly.

It's probably 2500 of reading plus 5000 of thinking plus 10000 of actual practice.
