The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a fast-paced, dystopian story that will constantly keep you guessing. Though there are countless comparisons to books like Ender's Game, this story takes on a life of its own as we learn about a grim, destitute world through the eyes of a cutthroat yet fascinating teen girl named Katniss Everdeen.
Katniss is thrown into a life or death tournament where the fate of her starving people is thrown onto her back. Though its also categorized as YA, there's definitely enough bone-crunching and violence to make this book more appropriate for adults than younger readers.
In case you're not aware, a film production is currently in development. I can't wait to see how well they translate The Hunger Games into a movie version.
