Society as we know it has fallen and has been replaced by the authoritarian nation of Panem. Residents live in tightly controlled districts and do what they can to avoid dying before their time. Yet death still may find them, simply by the luck of the draw. Because in this new society, the children must compete yearly in a fight to the death — The Hunger Games. This is the future — and the setting of the dark, dystopian and extremely popular trilogy by Suzanne Collins.  The first book, “The Hunger Games,” was released to critical acclaim in 2008 and remained on the New York Times bestseller list for than 180 consecutive weeks.  The series’ first movie opened March 23.  — Merrie Leininger, Kim Ossi and Wendy Zang, McClatchy-Tribune
