First of all PAF as you found out yesterday, while a lot of you are "purists" in other aspects of the world, I am a purist when it comes to books so I want to point this out about the hunger games really quick. They are similar to a Japanese original called Battle Royale. Not that the Hunger Games looses relevance because of that... I just think people should check out Battle Royale also and some people are unaware of it.

That being said, as much as I love literary dystopias.... and I LOVE literary dystopias... The Hunger Games did not quite do it for me.

However, I loved the blog link. That is the thing about literary dystopias. They are based on a true stories, they are based on stories of what will truly be if people do not pay attention to what is going on around them and fight back. They are also often full of truths about society as is.

So in a lot of ways... yes....The Hunger Games series is based on a true story.
