A while back I finished an audio book of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

The Hunger Games is a dystopian YA, set in a province that is held down, and at constant near starvation levels, by a central government after a long ago rebellion. As part of their punishment, the provinces have to send one male and one female teenager to the capitol to battle to the death, with the survivor being rich afterwards.

It's an enjoyable book, with some strong characterizations and descriptions, though a bit predictable in its outcomes. The book it most reminded me of is the much darker The Running Man.
