Posted April 12, 2012 by Megan Whalen Turner

If there really are only seven original plots in the world, it’s odd that boy meets girl is always mentioned, and society goes bad and attacks the good guy never is. Yet we have Fahrenheit 451, The Giver, The House of the Scorpion—and now, following a long tradition of Brave New Worlds, The Hunger Games….

Posted August 23, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant
