    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.

    Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

    I think I'm done with this series! By 3/r of the way through, I was cringing at Katniss' naivety, the drawn out, saccharine half-love scenes, and disappointed at the way characters just disappeared or died.


    Has The Hunger Games turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Oh yeah, no more pain for me. I read the wikipedia entries, just so I could see how the series progresses. It felt like too much was left on the editor's cutting-room floor.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was just ok - it was a bit nasally in my opinion, but that wasn't the worst part of the book. The book was.
