If you’re looking for a movie to unwind with this break, consider The Hunger Games. This movie is action packed and filled with suspense. Although I’m sure Hunger Games needs no introduction, I’ll just say that is a dystopian tale about twenty-four adolescents fighting to the death in a yearly televised production. There may be a little love triangle involved, but that is definitely a smaller part of tale.
The author, Suzanne Collins, was inspired by reality television and classic mythology. Her father is a military historian and Vietnam veteran, which also influenced her to write about survival and fighting. Although The Hunger Games is a young adult book, its adult themes make it accessible to adults as well. If you like the film, be sure to check out The Hunger Games trilogy at the library.
