Writing Lessons from The Hunger Games

Holy cow!  Have you read this book? My son brought it home from school and I have heard good things about it, so I picked it up just to read a couple of chapters. I read until 2am.  It has been a long time since a book has kept me this spellbound.

In many ways it is a textbook example of how to write good fiction.

I am moving on to book #2 Catching Fire, but stay tuned for a series of posts on the lessons a writer can learn from reading The Hunger Games trilogy.  WARNING!  These postings will spoil the hell out of these books so read 'em now!
