You Really Ought to Know: The Hunger Games

This series by Suzanne Collins is my new obsession.  The first book, The Hunger Games, is amazing.  I couldn’t believe that a Young Adult novel could have me so engrossed, and provoke so much thought.  Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down.

A synopsis from Barnes & Noble:

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.

 

There are three books in the series, with the last slated for release in August of this year.  As of March of last year, Lionsgate is set to release a Hunger Games movie.  I can’t wait to see how this futuristic world is captured on screen.  Read it and tell me what you think!
