The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Kindle)

I meant to get this book free through Amazon Prime's Kindle borrowing service, but accidentally bought it for $5.  Oh well, lesson learned.  This book has terrible writing, but was tough to put down.  I haven't figured out how a crappy book could be that enjoyable, but it is what it is.  I guess the premise, which seems less like a rip off of The Running Man than thought, appeals to me.  I can certainly see how the tweens got wrapped up in it.

There is a fair amount of casual violence which seems like a bit much for younger readers, but they're already exposed to violence in other media.

I recommend this book if you can get it for free.
