Book Review: Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
Nineteen Eighty-Four is an outstandingly (in every sense of the word) powerful, thought-provoking, compelling, engaging portrait of an all too feasible near future.

Book Review: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #0)
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is really interesting less as a villain origin story and more as a reflection on the early days of The Hunger Games. Coriolanus Snow is 18 during the events of this book, and the tenth Games are about to start. Ten years previous, when he and his classmates were 7 or 8 years old, the rebels attacked the Capitol, killing tons of people, causing mass starvation (some people even resorted to cannibalism), and leaving the city in shambles, both physically and economically.

Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #1)
Written along the lines of Stephen King’s The Long Walk or George Orwell’s 1984, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins still feels very original and sucked me in completely with its modern day Survivor-esque retelling. The Hunger Games is the ultimate in reality TV, suspense, scripted realism, romance and survival that you should not miss.
