Not sure if anyone has read this series, but there are three books by Suzanne Collins worth reading if you like yuong adult books. The first is The Hunger Games, second is Catching Fire, and third is Mockingjay. The movie for The Hunger Games will; come out in March 2012. You will not be able to put them down.

Awesome series. Guns, Post-Apoc dystopia, brutal murder for survival, robots, flying cars, 70's style Sci-Fi FX and rampaging bio-engineered mutants.

There's some romance in there and stuff but if the Princess Bride taught me anything it's that the kissing parts are okay.

I agree with pp. Awesome summary, Still going! These books were great and I hope hope hope they don't ruin the movie for us.

I am wondering how Lenny Kravitz will do as Cinna. And I think Donald Sutherland will make a perfect Snow.

Lenny Kravitz is Cinna?

I get Donald Sutherland, good choice. I have no objection to Kravitz in spirit, but.. I don't.. I.. wot?

eta:

Haha. Woody Harrelson is Haymitch. I gotta see this now.

If you liked Hunger Games, try Matched by Ally Condie.

Am enjoying the Hunger Games now. It's a great ride! I had no idea it was being made into a movie.
