I am usually not all that enthused about top selling popular books because I feel they are mostly a critical let down. This is an exception. Bi found this book gripping, emotional and horrifying. It served to anchor my distrust of government further than it already is.
This is a tale of a governments punishment of its districts in what can only be described as ritualistic slaughter of its citizens children as a method of control and punishment for previous rebellion. Yes, there are some mistakes in editing and the players can sometimes be unrealistic. Forget that and let yourself be involved in the story. You won't regret it.
