2010 The Hunger Games

Written by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games is a thrilling page-turner about a future in which a brutal reality TV show dominates mass culture. Each year a lottery selects representatives from each region to compete in a televised fight-to-the-death known as the Hunger Games. How will the impoverished mining district's players, Katniss and Peeta, fare against competitors who have trained their whole lives for this moment? A twenty-first century version of Brave New World, The Hunger Games raises powerful questions about contemporary "civilization" and the future of humanity.
