"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins /// Surprisingly well-written. The storyline is interesting and the characters aren't whiny and annoying. I read the trilogy really quickly, as I felt really involved with the story. The movie that's coming out in the spring should be pretty neat.
What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
Some people did not like it, but I argue that it ended in the only way it could. There are no winners in war.
