A book that reminds of the the "Minotaur" myth from the Greek mythology. In the Greek myth The Minotaur was a bull-headed man, whom King Minos 2 shut up in the Labyrinth which Daedalus had built in Crete. The Athenians were then forced by Minos 2 to send every year seven young men and seven young women to be fodder of this famous beast.
Soundd familiar well I loved this book for the way that it is written, the idea of using mythology, gladiator arena and new technology was fantastic for me. The plot itself was extremely unique and was filled with adventure that kept you extremely riveted. Even though Panem was a fictional world it was very easy to see many parallels to our world, which I found extremely interesting.
Well I know that this book it is for the young adult audience, I am almost 30 and enjoy it. I can;t wait to read "Catching Fire" the second book and also can wait to buy the third one when it comes out. For me this book is as good as the Harry Potter books.
