Cover of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Date read: October 6, 2010
Rating: ★★★★

As faddish throwaway young-adult fiction goes, this was surprisingly robust. Yes, it borrows very heavily from Battle Royale, but once it gets going, it’s genuinely very entertaining and a nice little palate-cleanser. Looking forward to the two sequels now.
