72 Hours

Photo by Elena Y.

I had been nervously avoiding reading The Hunger Games, but my oldest talked me into it. She was the first one to finish the series, and then she handed off Mockingjay to her younger brother, who was patient enough to wait the day it took for her to read it. My husband has been losing sleep reading the series at night. I read all three books in 72 hours -- they were riveting! And a lot to digest.

So I think you could safely say that our family recommends them, although not for younger children.

No, NOT for younger children, but The Hunger Games was one of the most difficult books to put down that I've read in a long, long time. I haven't gotten to the other two yet, but it sounds like they're just as good! Can't wait.

Riveting is right. What a patient son you have! We had two copies on pre-order (she said sheepishly.) :)
