The Hunger Games Trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

When I posted about the Percy Jackson books (verdict: meh) and how I like reading YA fiction, a couple of folks suggested The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. So I picked up the first volume and really, really loved it. It’s a sort of The Running Man but for kids, with pretty overt political themes, strong game play elements, and very quickly paced. Loved it. The second book, Catching Fire, I also read over a couple of days, and was lucky in my timing that the day I finished it, the third volume in the series came out. The first book was stronger than the other two, I thought, but the whole series is entertaining and well done, and won’t take you long to read, anyway. (And much preferable to Percy Jackson, in my estimation.)
