The Hunger Games
Jusrt finished reading book 1 of the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins and absolutely loved it. 2 and 3 have been ordered and are on their
Set at some point in the future, the world has become a dark dystopia with most people living in abject poverty. Once a year 2 people between the
ages of 12 and 18 are selected to take part in the games and then it is a fight to the death to become the last one standing.
In a nutshell its a cross between the Running Man (Arnie film) and the Tripods (old 80s tv show).
It's actually aimed at the young adults demographic but I really enjoyed it. And of course, it's soon to be released as a major motion picture.
2 thumbs way up from me.
