The Hunger Games.

I'm decades past the target demographic, and I didn't expect to like it. I have a few quibbles with it but overall it was entertaining. Looking forward to the movie, because based on the production personnel and the casting it just might end up better than the book. It would have been interesting to see this story told by someone more experienced. It needs to be a bit more gritty and edgier.

Any of my books by Lovecraft. :blink:
Everybody lies.

If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic.

The notion of picking 1 times of the year to be decent to others is obscene because it's actually validating the notion of being miserable SOB finaly.

Your biggest problem...hell I don't know what it is!!! Ask somebody else.

The other half has just finished Hunger Games & really enjoyed it. I may be tempted to give it a whirl. Apparently the idea came from a Japanese novel written way back in 1999. I don't think you can get the original in English but the Japs did make a film of it in 2000 which is available with sub-titles (Battle Royale it was called).

Don't know quite why, but while I'm between library books I've decided to re-read Trilby by George Du Maurier in which Svengali hypnotizes the young artist's model Trilby into becoming a great performer.

The Fires Of Heaven by Robert Jordan
In the midst of the word he was trying to say,
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away—
For the Snark was a Boojum, you see.

Shadow of the Hegemon by Orson Scott Card

The Rapides Parish Library doesn't have a print copy of the next volume in the series. I may try using its website's "interlibrary loan" link to try and order Shadow Puppets when the time comes.
