The Hunger Games trilogy

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."
