The Hunger Games, by Susan Collins

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

WOW.  I was swept up in The Hunger Games and finished it within 3 days. As a working mother of a toddler, that says a lot!  

Imagine a future in post apocalyptic North America, where reality TV is taken to a gross extreme.  A society of “haves” ruling a society of “have nots”.   Characters that you root for, cry with, and yet are also flawed in their own way.

I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed reading a book as much as this one.     Maybe The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, although I might have liked this one a tad more. Dragon had some slow parts, this one, not so much.

I am reading the sequel, Catching Fire now… More on that soon!
