    Hey your link for the Twilight review doesn’t seem to work. It took me to a sex scandal post…

    Thanks for reviewing this. I have heard a bunch of stuff about the Hunger Games but had no real clue what it was. Thanks for sharing your thoughts… =)

    Good one, Jem, and relevant. Hunger Games are all the talk among our youth. I think I’ll try harder to borrow a copy and read it for myself.

    We had a bunch of teenagers show up at the archery club on Saturday, including 2 girls, which is somewhat unusual. I suspect there may be a connection with the book/movie.

    Might have to try and read it sometime.

    I just finished the series. It’s take on “black and white ethics” and “not becoming the enemy” is actually very insightful, and I recommend it for teens. Definitely not for younger though, due to violent themes.

    Also love to add that although there are love interests (and love is an important theme to the books) there is no “sex” involved in that, which is a nice change.

    @Kez – that article is the right one – you just have to scroll down (it tricked me too when I was linking to it)

    @Jane – Em has a copy – I almost asked her for her thoughts.

    @Steve – this made me laugh. Almost like more people joining the Navy after watching Top Gun.

    @Greg – would you be interested in sharing your thoughts on Book 2 & 3 in addition to my next post?

    Hmm.., I can see that there are possible influences from those two books Jeremy, but to me it seemed like the most obvious source for inspiration was The Long Walk by Stephen King..or even the Japanese novel/film Battle Royale. Thoughts?
