So over the past month I’ve been reading a lot more than usual, primarily due to a writing class where I have to read a few novels a week to discuss the writing, genre etc. Anyways, I am so grateful because this led me to probably one of the best books I have ever read! It’s not an amazing literary masterpiece, but the idea and the story itself is just sheer brilliance. Suzanna Collins is the author of “The Hunger Games”, a book that I can’t even begin to describe. I literally finished it in one sitting because I just could not put it down. It’s a story that definitely fits into the apocalypse theme that is popular these days and the characters, setting, plot and just the whole concept is….wow! Its definitely a good read for all ages, and if I had to compare it to something…..maybe Da Vinci Code meets Avatar? But even that just at the very least because this book stands on its own.
Suddenly my expectations of myself as a writer have catapulted to another level of excellence that hopefully one day I can achieve! I could go on forever praising the book, but I really think you should check it out for yourself and please let me know what you thought as well!
