Absolutely love these novels! Recently just heard from different outlets that the whole premise of the hunger games in our reality...is one that has to do with wealth inequality or Class Warfare. I totally disagree on that one! If these people would've paid attention, it has to do with Government Tyranny and the control. Could not put down any of these books. Read em all fairly quickly. I do have to say, however, the first movie did not do the first novel justice....but, Catching Fire was absolutely amazing on the big screen! Actually, helped me understand a few things that were a lil' confusing to me in the book. Definitely felt things come more alive on the big screen than the 2nd book!
