After hearing so much about The Hunger Games, I finally picked up
a copy at my library, and I'm glad I did because this book rocked! I
couldn't help but compare its government to our own, and how we're
getting closer and closer to having our freedoms obliterated and having
the government control everything we do. I loved Katniss' character. She
is one girl who can take care of herself, even when she and everyone
around her is oppressed.

Collins creates a world that is
basically horrible. The Capital makes people play in a game to their
deaths and forces everyone in the districts to watch as their loved ones
die. I was reminded of The Giver
by Lois Lowry (another must-read book), where the Elders choose what
the younger people do as a living, and they are supposed to accept their
job without complaint or rebellion.

I love reading dystopian
books, even though they essentially are all depressing. It gives us a
peek into what this world would be like if such-and-such actually
happened.

The Hunger Games
has excitement, and will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way
through. It will be interesting to see what happens in Catching Fire, the second book in the
trilogy, especially with the love triangle of Katniss, Gale, and Peeta.
