34 – The Book Club On Fire – Hunger Games Book 1

Set in a dystopian future The Hunger Games is a story that has some chilling similarities to our society today. We talk about the first book in the Hunger Games Trilogy.

We each discuss what our strategies would be in the Hunger Games, both socially before and physically during the game, and then after that get into some literary nitty gritties. Did Suzanne Collins take the easy way out with Rue? Is Katniss an unreliable narrator, and is there anything special about Katniss or was she just in the right place at the right time.
