Spent a weekend devouring the entire Hunger Games series: Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. All written by Suzanne Collins and narrated by Carolyn McCormick. Started a little slow in the first book, but once it picked up, I couldn’t put down the series.
In general the series reminds of V for Vendetta, Brave New World, the Hatchet (only in the first book), Fahrenheit 451. Stories about government control, censorship, survival,and independence. Ultimately trying to make your own destiny. (I probably read a little too many of these books growing up…:).
Overall, highly recommended. Last book comes off a little chaotic, but in general you won’t be able to stop once you start (beware).
So, it looks like I’ll be watching the movie when it comes out.
