    Summer camp based on the Hunger Games

    "No! No violence this week," the camp's head counselor was busy telling the children. But keeping the kids from talk of murder would prove difficult. That was, after all, the driving plot point of The Hunger Games and this was Hunger Games camp.

    At the end of the week, the 26 kids expected to compete in a real-life Hunger Games tournament. They'd spend the next few days training. Then they'd fight to the "death."
    On Wednesday morning, the camp's head counselor, Lindsey Gillette, told the campers there would be a rule change to Friday's Hunger Games tournament. Instead of "killing" each other by taking flags, the campers would instead "collect lives." Whoever had the most flags would win.

    Meh. Saw the movie. Still wondering what the fuss is all about.

    Heard the fuss, read the book. Entirely without reason or merit. Nonsensical abuse exploitation with the political structure behind it being an analysis free given. At least Lord of the Flies, and even television's Lost, bothered to give the briefest of backgrounds with a plane crash to set the scene.

    What happened, ladies? Used to be we caveman types read Popular Mechanics while writing our names in the snow while you read literary elitist stuff we had to ask Cliff Clavin to write some notes on. With Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins and EL James being the finer gender's recent celebrated authors I'm starting to wonder.

    The trilogy as a whole is good in the dystopian genre. I'm surprised at the noncult popularity that the movie/s has tho. But like many of today's young adult (ages 13-16) aimed books, I cringe at the age group they are targeting. (Although twilight should not be targeted at anyone but maybe as a punishment to repeat offenders) just because kids are used as a main demographic does not mean they are meant for kids ie Enders game and the dark matters trilogy but yet we continue to try to push that way which hurts the movie versions more. A couple of the new series are good if you have a taste for them but I definitely would have up'd the age on the characters and either way not classify them for kids.
