What's Wrong With The Hunger Games?

What's Wrong With The Hunger Games?

The movie opens tomorrow. I’ve written a lot about The Hunger Games already. You should read the first volume. (This note is fairly free of spoilers, I think, and this isn’t a book where spoilers matter. You know the plot.)

But before we move on to The Winter King and to What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank, let’s talk about some of the things that are not quite right.

Still: a fine yarn, and one which bears more thought than it seems to require.
