Reading Commandment: “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins

hungergames_suzannecollinsFinal Rating: 5 cups of tea that remain untouched because I as too busy reading to drink them.

This is not a review. So many reviews have already been written that I feel adding another one to the cacophony would be pointless. That, and after finishing this today, I find that I utterly lack the words to express how incredible it is.

There are books, and then there are books. This is one of the latter. I have felt things reading this novel that I didn’t even know a book could draw out of me. There were parts of it that made me weep as I have only when I’ve lost friends; parts that made my insides twist with horror; parts that made me see myself as though I were looking in a mirror. And of course, there were parts which caused me to look at the world around me and see that the dark vision this book speaks of is rapidly coming into focus.

Stop reading this post. Go read this book instead. I don’t care whether you’re old or young, because with this book, it doesn’t matter. There is nothing about this book I dislike. Nothing. Go read it. Go read it right now.

And may the odds be ever in your favor.
