Susan Collins' trilogy, The Hunger Games, was first published in 2008. This series quickly became popular, and the fan base continues to grow as the movie premiere excites readers. Often a topic of conversation, at the lunch table with friends, at the dinner table with family, on vacation with strangers, I've found a common interest with many people. The dipiction of a futuristic dystopian society has drawn many readers of all ages. The story is grusome, following twenty-four kids fighting to the death. This action is dramatic, keeping you turning page after page.
