You know what they say, "To the victor goes the spoils." But who's victor???
I haven't been around here long enough or thoroughly enough to know the general consensus about "The Hunger Games" trilogy, however, I found the books to be short, entertaining, and a wonderful insight to a heroines perspective in a totalitarian world. Similar to The Running Man or The Long Walk, though IMDB trolls call it a Battle Royale ripoff (crybabies).
Agree. Collections are great for a quick dip in and out.
....OK, I ain't gotta clue about that acronym...somebody please help an old fossil out?...coz I don't want to read anything else, until my novel arrives well after everyone snatches it up elsewhere-coz I gotta wait for the SK Library to limp it to the mailbox...
If you mean UDBU,
read the letter!
YEEESS! The wait is soon over. But wait, does it publish at the same time in sweden? I've been waiting years to have SK try his hand at a crime story. Of sorts anyway.
I loved The Girl who loved Tom Gordon. Not very long but very good, better than Joyland in my opinion. But Joyland was good too.....
...NOW I got it....just hadda make me read didntcha????....well I did till I was BLUE in the face....
You couldn't go past, Cycle of the Werewolf.
Another vote for Joyland here.
As for the collections, I read langoliers as my 2nd ever novel/novella and I'm sure if I read it now it would just fly by (my reading speed seems to have picked up since I read my 1st novel - IT - about 4 years ago)
I would go with Carrie. It's fairly short and readable. Not exactly a feel good book, but one you want to finish once you start.
