The Hunger Games - Liberals and Libertarians

I enjoyed reading "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. It's a quick read, but she does a good job. Not too much detail to accommodate the quick pace of the story line. The characters develop quickly as well. One observation, not actually a complaint, is that the author spends a lot of time describing the food and the clothing. It's something I'm unused to.

But I wanted to write about the part that sticks with me. The character of Rue, the girl tribute from District 11. And the line that got me then and has stuck with me since: 'Rue holds up her extra pair of socks. “I have these for my hands.”'
