i want to read, the hunger games trilogy
(but i want an ereader or ipad, not the books)
i have now completed the hunger games and am half way thru catching fire
if you are reading for entertainment and to transport to another place via the written word then read this trilogy
it's awesome so far
best storytelling author of all time ~ harold robbins (a stone for danny fisher and i'm not sure, never love a stranger)
I finished the trilogy in about two days' time. Was before the movie. Liked the first and second novels, but the third seemed to be written in a hurry to satisfy a publisher's deadline. Could have been better. That second book, Catching Fire
, was on a very adult level and I REALLY liked it. Did anyone catch the metaphor for President Snow couched in symbols of Richard III-- the White Rose and the Scent of Blood? IMO, the author is cunning and casts some sarcastic references to the current political scene. With just a tad more subversion, Susan Collins could be the YA equivalent of of the wonderful Margaret Atwood.THG TRILOGY IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
There is a re-release of all of Kurt Vonnegut's stuff in one volume that just came out (small print/thin pages) but SO COOL! 'Bout halfway through.Also HIGHLY RECOMMEND Umberto Eco's The Prague Cemetery.
Snarky, impish account of a 19th Century schizophrenic who changes history by starting all the conspiracy theories about secret societies via forged documents. Sort of like Zelig
, but featuring a psychopath rather than an ingenue. Hi-fricking-intellectualarious! Umberto is up for a prestigious award for this work.
