Written for teens but who cares?

Suzanne Collins’ intended audience may be teens but adult readers will find plenty to like in The Hunger Games, and its sequel, Catching Fire. Collins creates a post-apocalyptic dystopia in which the value of entertainment trumps the value of humanity. Adventurous and chilling with well-drawn characters, this series is destined to become even more popular. The first book has been optioned for a movie and the third (and final) book in the series, Mockingjay, is due for publication in August.
