    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 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 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    "Borrows Plot and Lots of Ideas from Battle Royal"
    Overall

    This was a good book, a fun and interesting listen, but the basic plot and a lot of the ideas were done about ten years ago in a Japanese book called Battle Royal that was later turned into a movie and a manga. Of the two, I found Battle Royal more enjoyable and plausible, but both are good. Ironically Battle Royal was considered controversial when it was first translated into English--now ten years later Hunger Games (which has almost the exact same plot about twenty four kids isolated in an arena and forced to fight to the death for a nations entertainment) is a hugely popular young adult book. (SPOILERS) Hmmn, thinking about it now, not only did both books have twenty four juveniles forced to fight to the death until only one survior remained while a nation watched through cameras mounted all around the arena, but in both books for the first time two contestants live--and in both books its a boy and a girl who are in love. I wonder if Collins ever read Battle Royal. Any way, I recommend this on audio, and I recomend anyone who liked this pick up the Battle Royal novel off of Amazon.
