The Hunger Games

Will this be the next Twilight? It seems everywhere we turn these days, someone is talking about Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, a Young Adult trilogy that combines action, adventure and romance. The first book, The Hunger Games ($10), a dystopian tale of a government that forces young people to fight to the death for entertainment, is currently being turned into a movie. Read the book before the movie comes out so you can join the cool group that likes to poke fun at all the plot holes movies inevitably have.

I don't read much Young Adult literature, as a rule. I was happy to find that this was nothing like the Twilight series in that it features a strong and independent female as the main character. The writing is decent, and the story, while dark, is compelling. I was most impressed with the first installment of the trilogy.

This is one of my favourite books of all time, and I work at a book store. It (and the other two books in the trilogy) is extremely well written, emotional, and addictive. I seem to recall reading the first 2 books in about 48 hours flat. Definitely amazing.
