The Hunger Games

I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday because I needed something new to read. I had just finished reading The Magicians by Lev Grossman and though it was a pretty good book, but I needed to find something more captivating that I was not going to be able to put down.
I was looking at the table where all the New York Times bestsellers were when a woman, about 28 years old, grabbed two books as if her life depended on it. I started checking the covers out when a second woman who was probably about the same age took one of those books too. I had to know what was so great about this trilogy written by Suzanne Collins, so I decided to buy the first one and was completely hooked before even getting to page 30.
This morning, I took the subway (and it was pretty packed), I sat down and started reading when the woman sitting across from me said pretty loudly "OMG, do you like the Hunger Games?! My eleven year old daughter just finished it and she said it was pretty violent......." I could feel that I was blushing as people were now staring at me. I smiled and told her that it was an excellent book! (That was a pretty embarrassing...)
Anyways, after work I ran back to the bookstore to buy the two other volumes called 'Catching Fire' and 'Mockingjay" (I just couldn't bare the idea that they might ran out before I was done with the first one...)

Apparently this trilogy has been doing very well for a while as the movie is coming out in 2012! Here under you can see the trailer (do not watch it if you want to create your own characters with your imagination...) 

Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games. $5 or $32 for the trilogy
