It’s like 1984 meets reality TV and gladiators. I think the series is so popular because it makes you examine and ponder how we as a world are living now. This is one of the first books to come out in the huge dystopian YA market. It was recommended to me by Stephenie Meyer (not personally…) and I enjoyed the series as a whole. The end of the last book grew on me. I didn’t like it at first. There’s a supernatural element to them, too, which I enjoyed.
Content Rating: Medium, for lots of violence, some of it kind of disturbing.
