I am leading an class discussion of The Hunger Games by Collins. It is the story of a young woman in an dismal future who is forced to fight in televised games teens from other areas in order to secure food for her area. It's a little like running man meets survivor. I was thinking of playing a game as part of the discussion (it's not for a grade) and was wondering what titles might fit the novel's basic ideas. http://www.amazon.com/Hunger-Games-Suzanne-Collins/dp/043902... That is the Amazon page for the book for a more in depth idea. Thanks for any suggestions.
The first book was really good- hard to live up to that standard.
I thought the second book was much lighter. Story was a bit more predictable and there was less character development. It was a pretty fast read. I enjoyed it but not as much as the first. As the second book of the trilogy, I think its main function is not as a stand alone work rather it sets up the conclusion in the third book.
