Tag Archives: the hunger games movie


Suzanne Collins doesn’t need my endorsement. THE HUNGER GAMES series is an international bestseller and the movie will be out soon. But having just finished the book last night I have to tell you how much I loved it. It’s not just that it wasn’t a book that I could have possibly conceived of, that for me, it was as original as it was well-written, or even that I was thoroughly entertained. It was that her success is so well deserved, that it made me glad to have read it.

After reading several pieces of fiction that I wouldn’t want to throw out in the trash lest my garbage man find it and scoff at me, it’s so wonderful to come across a piece of literature that is excellent, and also mainstream. A rare feat that makes me feel good to be a writer and an avid reader.

I’m off to read the second in the series right now.
