Aside from the short story fiction classes in college (which was my emphasis as an English major), one of my absolute favorite classes was the modern literature class. I enjoyed reading Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, J.G. Ballard's High-Rise, and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. The Hunger Games Trilogy fit with this genre because of the underlying governmental interference in the lives of it's characters. I liked the partnership between Katniss and Peeta that developed as the books moved along. "Real or not real?" "Real."
