The Hunger GamesLast night I finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy, and I LOVED them! Its such an amazing series, I couldn't put the book down until I finished at 3:45 in the morning.
Now I can't wait for the first movie to come out next year. (They just finished filming it right here in Charlotte.) Some friends of mine have said they spotted some of the cast of the film like Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz. The movie trailer looks awesome!
These are up there with some of the best books I've ever read. They have everything: its amazingly suspenseful, its full of interesting (and deadly) technology and characters, and it has not just one, but several tragic love stories. Although it's classified as young adult fiction, the themes are very mature and the story is very dark. The characters really grab you and you feel for them, right up the last sentence.
