  1. Have the feeling that all dystopian literary works are basically produced from the same model. The Handmaid's Tale basically feels like the female perspective of Orwell's 1984. Or is it just that I should read more (I haven't read Brave New World or Fahrenheit 451 yet).

      It's a bit more nuanced than that as well, since it also depends on the author's own views.  1984's dystopia was a totalitarian socialist one (effectively a warning from George Orwell, himself a socialist to his dying day, to avoid becoming too authoritarian), The Handmaid's Tale presents a Christian theocratic dystopia through a female-centric lens.  In the case of Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451, the best way to describe both of them would be technocratic dystopias, but in different ways; Brave New World's dystopia is founded on the principles of eugenics and what could best be described as luxury communism, whereas Fahrenheit 451's world is set in a world overrun by rampant materialism, basically the opposite of Brave New World (though it was really just Ray Bradbury's author filibuster against television).
