Read in August, 2008

The Hunger Games is disturbing, romantic, and entrancing all at the same time. I could not stop reading. The characters are beautifully developed and the setting is eerie (too real and too plausible). At first I thought it the dystopian society would be hard to believe, but Collins really sells it. I was with her from beginning to end.

By the way, I cried at two scenes and nearly had a heart attach at a couple others. I read tons of books and for me that experience is very rare. Prepare yourself for an emotional fit!
