After all the main characters go through during the Hunger Games, what the president does to them next is unthinkable. This is definitely an interesting read in light of all the revolutions going on in the Middle East right now.
You know, this is one of the few books written in 1st person where I don't really identify with the main character because I'd be much more likely to engage in flight rather than fight. Something else I've noticed about the main characters is that they never follow the rules and are liars. Apparently, these are good qualities in revolutionaries or something? It's just interesting to me that one of the top young adult books out there talks about a character who is a liar as being lily white and perfect.
