Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games saw great commercial success because it played by all the rules. It had a very black-and-white morality system where the underdog is good, and the big gov’t is evil. It’s a lot like if George Orwell had never discovered postmodernism, and decided he wanted to write bland teen love triangles instead. Love triangles can be tolerable, good even, in a good novel, but this one falls miserably short due to the whiny nature of two participants, and the third hardly being a fleshed-out character. Overall, it’s easy to see why this book was successful, despite its jarring flaws.

This book was all about 24 kids who were sent from 12 districts in Panem (one girl and one boy from each district). They are sent to an arena to fight each other- to the death. This is done to show that the capitol has power and to show that you can always have hope. The main character, Katniss Everdeen is sent along with a local boy she knows, Peeta Mellark to fight from district 12. There may only be one remaining victor in the end. Will Katniss be able to use her hunting skills to fight, and even win? And will she be left to fight Peeta? Find out by reading this magnificent, amazing book written by Suzanne Collins . I definitely rate it 5/5.)
