An Emotional Response
Suzanne Collins is an amazing writer and I have no problem throwing her in the J.K. Rowling category. At the end of the audio book, there was a brief recording from Suzanne Collins herself. She explains how the Hunger Games trilogy was based on the story of Theseus and the Minotaur and inspired by a day of channel surfing between reality shows where young people play for money and footage of the war in Iraq where young people are fighting for their lives.
If you haven't read this trilogy. Do it. Now. And if you don't have the time, do what I did. Check out the audio book from your local library.
