    After the meteor strikes the moon, services such as telephone, Internet, and television
    stop, and Miranda writes in her journal that “Civilization has ended.” Do you think
    people are too dependent on electronic gadgets? Would you feel as Miranda does if you
    could no longer use the gadgets many people have come to depend on in their daily lives?
    How would you handle this situation?

    By the end of the SPRING, a lot of things have changed in Miranda's life.
    What are some of the MOST unexpected changes that have taken place?
    Think about more than just concrete, tangible objects or things.... think about relationships, personalities, and human behavior.

    Give us your reaction to the asteroid hitting the moon.
    Would you be frightened? excited? indifferent?
    How would you help your parents if you had to prepare for a LONG time without electricity/water?

    Hunger Games and Catching Fire were only the first two installments in the Hunger Games trilogy but they instilled a 'fire' and 'hunger' for reading in all of us.  I hope you continue to follow Katniss on her quest for justice, love and the pursuit of happiness. 

    Tell us how the first two books have impacted you.  Give specific example and cite moments in the books that moved you in some way.  Do you feel different since you've met these characters?  Did they influence you in any way?  Testify to the power of these books and encourage others to share the adventure.....

    Katniss finds herself in a new ARENA where Haymitch advises her to figure out who the True Enemy is.  Wonder how this Games will play out and if Katniss will be able to protect all of those she loves.

    Can you imagine dealing with the pressure that Katniss is under?
    It makes you wonder if being a celebrity is all its cracked up to be..... would you sacrifice your personal life for notoriety?  Is fame worth your freedom?

    Does anyone else see the parallels between the Hunger Games and the Roman Gladiator Games?  Give me some examples of where you see relationships, whether it be similarities or differences.  For example, weren't the tributes paraded around the Capitol in horse-drawn chariots?!!  Let's see what you can come up with.....
