The Hunger Games books teaches so many morals about a war, it makes you realize war is one of the stupidest things to ever be used repeatedly, amirite?

I totally agree. A shitty fictional children's book will never teach you as much about war as the news or history text book.

I read the book just before the film came out because of all the hype, and I was incredibly disappointed. I apologise, its not shitty, its just...average. Mind numbingly average.

1. Not children's
2. Not shitty
3. The book is analogy, which are used to get messages across in different ways to trick those to look through this different viewpoint, which can in turn change their views.
