During my recent holidays, I read through the 3 books in the Hunger Games series. It's been a while since I was grabbed by a novel series. They were a great read. I'm still pondering many of the themes in the books and wondering what it says about our world that means they have been picked up with such interest. I look forward to watching the movie when it comes out on DVD. Steve Taylor has done an interesting review of the movie which raises many of the themes within this story.
