When I first got my iPad I downloaded the audiobook, wish I would have read it!

I just finished the first book last week. I was surprised how much I actually enjoyed it. They're pretty easy books to read and if you're a heavy reader, it shouldn't take you much time at all to finish. They're nice little twist and turns at the end of almost every chapter in the first book, which I enjoyed and the main character is highly enjoyable. The book actually got me pretty excited for the movie and hopefully they do the Games themselves justice cause that could actually come off really cool on screen.

Just started on Catching Fire the other day.

Re: The Book thread.

Just got to the end of 'Ender's Game' and have to say, I'm loving it. Found out there making a movie come 2013, so a little more excited. Great book.

That's honestly a book that you should be reading in school anyway. I think I read it on a Summer Reading list when I was in high school (maybe even middle school) and I found it amazing then. If there weren't just countless great books out there I would go back and read it again for sure.

I read the first chapter of I think for a school project once. I'm sure at the time it might have come across as enjoyable but I have a hard really enjoying classic books. I just feel like I can go and read something equally entertaining and thought provoking and have it written in a way that I can easily understand so I just stick with modern stuff.

The games themselves could be totally badass during the movie and I really hope they are. I'm kind of thinking they might ton down some of the violence because they probably won't want to have too many young children get brutally murdered.


I've been downloading some audio books since I've been working an overnight shift at work once a week. They're fucking amazing and make the night go by so much faster. Not sure what I want to listen to tonight though.

Re: The Book thread.

I read 1984 at the age of 14.. good stuff. The BBC adaptation starring Peter Cushing is good too. Think it's kicking about on youtube.

I couldn't get through 1984. Maybe because I saw V for Vendetta and was expecting 1984 to be shit too.


I just started Dune and The man in the iron mask!

Re: The Book thread.

I just read Idlewild by Nick Sagan. I was going to read it sooner, but I kept putting it off thinking that I wouldn't like it. Turns out I was wrong. Great read. I'm going to pick up the other two from the library soon.
