I’m not a Sci-Fi fan. Not at all. I must admit, though, when perfectly level-headed, non-Sci-Fi folks started telling me to read The Hunger Games, I was a little curious. These people don’t like Sci-Fi, either, I kept thinking. Maybe I should give it a try. I’ve resisted all the other fads so far, what can this one hurt?
After downloading the sample of the first book, I was hooked. I couldn’t get the full book downloaded fast enough! And so it was with the second and third book as well. I can’t recall the last time I read a book I couldn’t put down, much less a series. I read all three books in a week.
The final book was my least favorite, although, I’m not totally sure why.
For as much as I loved the books, I’m not really excited about the movie. I don’t care for Sci-Fi movies. I’m sure I’ll see it when it comes out on video (wow–how old am I?). Mr. Gray loves Sci-Fi movies, so we’ll meet in the middle with a home-viewing.
If you’re on the fence about the books, go for it!
