Now Entering District 12

April 11, 2012


Like many people, I’ve just cottoned on to the greatness of The Hunger Games. It is a world where districts are dominated by their isolation from one another, where the only information that passes is what can be gleaned from the censored broadcasts of the games.

January 18, 2012
