This story was so much more profound back when it was called "Battle Royale"

Anyone who compares these books to Battle Royale has not read these books. Plain and simple.
Don't get me wrong -- they're TERRIBLY written. But the story is absolutely irresistible.

Hunger Games has much more of an adventure and mainstream coming of age theme to it than Battle Royale. Battle Royale imo is bleaker, less sci-fi and is tied much more to modern day culture, focusing more on the background issues of teens and how it effects their judgment.
It was a pain reading Hunger Games. Its definitely young adult entry.
