THIS BOOK WORE ME OUT!
Before that I read another book by Hillary Jordan; Mudbound was good storytelling but the 1940's southern racism and sexism got my hackles up. Before that I read The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips. Full of Shakespearean lore and, yes, tragedy.
So now I need a rest. My nerves are shot, but I can't go more than a day without a book to read. I think I'll look for a nice book - something with screen doors slamming, fireflies and peach cobbler.
I saw the commercial for the Hunger Games movie and it intrigued me. It looks a bit intense, so maybe not next, but my question is: has anyone read the series and it it worthwhile?
