I've been sorely neglecting my book reviews. I've read over a gazillion jillion books, so it's hard for me to pick one to blog about. Although, one YA (young adult) series that stands out in my mind is The Hunger Games trilogy. For a YA series, I actually liked it better than Twilight.
Um . . . did I just day that?!? God forbid I feel the fiery wrath of the Twilight fans. Now Twi-hards, before you get your panties in a wad, this is what Stephenie Meyer had to say about The Hunger Games - "I was so obsessed with this book I had to take it with me out to dinner and hide it under the edge of the table so I wouldn't have to stop reading. The story kept me up for several nights in a row, because even after I was finished, I just lay in bed wide awake thinking about it...The Hunger Games is amazing."
And, this what Stephen King had to say - "The Hunger Games is a violent, jarring, speed-rap of a novel that generates nearly constant suspense...I couldn't stop reading."
It is a towering tale of epic adventure, political suspense and yes, like most YA books, there is a love triangle. This book does not disappoint. If you're a Twi-hard, this is a MUST read.
***The author - Suzanne Collins has been a staff writer for several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All.
