The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I didn't want to see the movie or read the books, because from what I had read about them it seemed as if they would be kinda nasty. I said so to members of my writers' group, who were enthusing about the books. They told me I was right, but that the stories were all about rising above and overcoming the nastiness. On that basis, I acquired them as ebooks. I'm so glad I did.
This first volume got me right in with the opening pages, and took me on a wild ride to the end. It's fascinating and inspiring, and the characters very engaging. I totally loved it and am now deep into the next in the series.
I'm still not quite sure if I want see the film. I'll wait untiI finish the books, anyhow.
One day later.
I weakened and got the DVD. They did a good job of it.
