    What if You Read The Hunger Games?

    by Formerly Spherical

    What if more people thought that total strangers murdering each other by the thousands or millions represented humanity at its worst? What if in this age of perpetual wars, more people were repulsed by the very idea of war? What if a book could do this?

    What if you read a book review that didn't reveal an annoying amount about the story or its characters? What if a fiercely anti-political, anti-war novel was resonating with people young and old? What if the power of a story gave you hope that more people will embrace peace and freedom? What if I told you this story exists right now, and it's called The Hunger Games, a trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins."

    I am surprised that you consider the books to be excellent when "conservatives" typically promote centralized government power and warmongering.

    you really don't understand conservatives, do you. oh well.

    In any case, unlike you, I can separate real life from fiction.
