I have been listening to "The Hunger Games" and I am amazed at how great this book is. The book is thought provoking, suspenseful, and in many ways relevant to modern social issues. The concepts and struggles of these kids tugs at your heart strings, and I find myself frothing at the monstrous establishment that could create such a hideous sport where children are pitted in a battle to the death with other children. I have had a monthly platinum subscription to audible for several years and have listened to hundreds of audiobooks (usually nonfiction) and I can say that this is by far one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. I find myself doing random mindless chores around the house and driving the long way to work just so I can continue listening. Brilliantly done.
If you misinterpret the message of this book, you will find that it appears to be some professor trashing what appears to be single political groups. He isn't. The book does draw parallels between his theories on human behavior and current political issues, but if, upon reading this book, you find that he is getting too political, you are missing the message. These are observations, not opinions (for the most part).
