Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

I received the ARC for this novel at the BEA this year. It's Collins' first Young Adult read, she's published juvenile books previously, geared to the under 12 crowd. Bob beat me to the punch, he read it first, and loved it. We have significantly different reading taste, but he assured me I'd love it; and he was right. As soon as I finished I took it to work to pass around.

Hunger Games, is a page-turner. Collins has created a brilliantly imagined dystopia; equal to Brave New World. It keeps you guessing and on the edge, and you make connections with the characters without realizing it. You get swept up into the story immediately and do not want it to be over when you reach the last page; then on the last page you discover you've just read Book One. At least there's hope the saga will continue.
