I just finished reading the third book in the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. It left me breathless. I can’t believe that I liked this series as much I did, but I really did love it.
I didn’t want to put the books down to go to church, sleep, work, or various other appointments. All I wanted to do was read, to see how Katniss is able to reconcile her guilt and love.
And now I know. Read these books. They are amazing. I thought that I would hate them, that they would be like Twilight, but they are nothing like that. These books are so good because they are not fantastical situations, they are plausible. They are plausible if things like what is happening in Sudan and with child soldiers cease to become a thing of horror and cease to move good people to action. These are the things that could happen if we check our brains at the door.
Read these books.
