Audible pick of the week: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, narrated by Carolyn McCormick
Thanks to my wife and son for the pick: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins has of course just been released as a movie, but I'm told the first book is the best of the three, by far, and worth the read even by those who exceed the age limits of this youth fiction near-classic. Fans of Ender's Game, Lord of the Flies, Battle Royale and many other fantasy/sci-fi classics will see some familiar themes here.
