I believe it's one of the best series I've read though the last book I was not as happy with, but that's for another time.

The premise of kids, who have nothing to do with one another, being ordered to kill each other for spectator sport is horrific. Katniss encounters Rue again, and the two quickly form a bond. The Hunger Games is a 2008 dystopian novel by the American writer Suzanne Collins. Like the reaping, or food shortages, or the Hunger Games. I think we can do better than that for our kids.
