I’ve been hearing about Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins for way too long and after seeing a 1-day sale on Amazon to pick up the whole trilogy for like $4 I caved and picked it up. I burned through the first novel, far and away the best of the series, and during a couple long flights last week finished up the rest of the series. The books have everything – action, adventure, romance, more action – really creative settings and characters. I’m not usually a fiction guy, in fact, this might be the first series I’ve read in a very long time, but I’m gad I did. I can see why students have been going crazy for it. Awesome.
