For those of you following along I am on page 222 of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins!! I have today to read the rest. It is so, so very good! Last night I couldn't put it down to get some much needed sleep so as to be prepared for my day job. My honey was shocked to find me still reading when he went to bed-he's the true night owl.
The whole dressing the "tribute's" up, interviewing them-fascinatingly creepy!! I never watched Survivor-didn't like the whole be mean and fake to win thing and this book is like one big game of Survivor, although the "tributes" did not choose this path for themselves. Reading it is much better than watching real people preen for the camera.
I'm on Part II, the Games and I'm loving the cat-and-mouse game Rue and Katniss have conceived! It is very well-written and I knew I was in trouble when the book made me cry by page 37! I liked Collin's Gregor series and The Hunger Games is truly better!
