For her, survival is second nature.Hide synopsis
The books are great. You feel like you are there. It reminds me of how big corporations control the under dogs in today's world. It is "A Reality Show"
in a book. The "poor person" outwits big corporation by ...playing their game her way.
I really enjoyed this Trilogy. First, hats off to any writer tackling multicultural and class issues.
What is it that makes female writers so bold and fearless? Collins is not afraid to make you hate characters, feel mixed about characters, and question your own values. This trilogy is a must read for adults and children.
