Hunger Games


I realize that I was likely one of the last people on earth to read the Hunger Games, and that I'm way behind on this trend, but oh my god, I'm obsessed. All three books were finished in less than a week and now I'm dying to see the movie. I'll admit that I mostly like the books because of the character Peeta, who I may or may not have a huge crush on (I'm like a middle school girl), but at least I'm not alone as friends have told me they too have crushes on him. That said, I also think the theme is an important one in today's society of reality TV and the ever growing dehumanization of different people. Hopefully, the books influence young readers to find compassion and acceptance for one another, no matter where each of us if from, what we look like, or what are beliefs are. Have you read the books? What do you think?
