Hunger Games??

Ok am I the only person that found the Hunger Games deeply disturbing?? With all the popularity of the book I thought...well I guess I'll give it a try.....don't think I'll be reading the other two though. Actually read is an incorrect word....I skimmed it cause I couldn't even read it all but unfortunately the morbidity of it peeked my carnal curiosity.
I mean even though there may be some interesting dialogue and interactions between characters does not erase the fact that the premise of the book is teenagers killing teenagers!! I'm sorry I don't care how interesting the characters are and other things, I can't get past the fact that basically the story emerges from this heinous ritual of teen slaughter??
---Am I overreacting?--

  2. I've never read hunger games, but everyone tells me that it's a must read. I think I'll have to do a double check on the content before delving into it. I don't think you're overreacting if the premise of the book is teenage homicide.

  4. I have read all three and while I liked them, yes, they are quite odd. I totally see your point. The premise turned me off for a long time but I gave in after hearing so much about them.
