“The Hunger Games” makes commentary on reality media

Beware: pick up The Hunger Games, and you will not want to put it down. This may be the most addicting series I have picked up since I found Harry Potter in the fifth grade.
The 12 districts of Panem, the continent previously known as North America, are controlled by a totalitarian government called the Capitol. Each year, the Capitol mandates that one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district fight to the death in what they call the Hunger Games.
