If you haven't read this series, you are SO missing out. Don't let the fact that you're a grown-up and this is a YA book deter you. It's a page-turner, with a strong plot and great, fully fleshed-out characters. Oh, and it's chock full of great writing. My mother, who's a super picky reader, read the first two books in two days. Steve, who's a huge fan of Lee Child, loved the books, too.
Still not convinced? Here are even more reasons why the HUNGER GAMES trilogy should be added to your Must Read List:
- The hook: Battle Royale meets The Running Man... but with KIDS!
- Kick-ass female protagonist
- Post-apocalyptic dystopian setting
- A love triangle!
- Plenty of blood, gore, and violence
Read it read it read it. Then tell me what you think.
