The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Unless you've been on another planet the last few years you've heard of the book and now movie, The Hunger Games.
I've been turning my nose up at this book for a long time. After all, I'm a macho man who reads thrillers, mysteries, and action. I like my books with a liberal dose of sex and violence. And The Hunger Games, well its a Young Adult book, a kids' book.
When they announced the movie was being released, I decided it was time to read the book before I saw the movie. I marched down the library and found out there were eighty-four people in line ahead of me waiting to read The Hunger Games.
I signed up on the wait list and discovered in the end it was worth the wait.
This is a well structured and well written novel. And it is a wonderful story. I enjoyed it so much I'm going to read the whole series.
