Late Friday thoughts... found this image on the web -- it's a book blogger's desk. I happen to like these two books too!! Am a huge Hunger Games fan (seriously)!!
This blogger hasn't written a LIE review yet... but I hope she does -- perhaps even she'll do some inter textual analysis between the two books -- of course, Skylar Thompson is living in the present, not some dark future, even though it may seem dark and hopeless to her. I wonder if writers like dystopian novels because it's easier than writing contemporary reality? There's nothing to hold you back? May we repair this world through our work, even if it means imagining another.
Last thought -- if you are in the area -- join me at the wonderful Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library on Saturday, October 15th from 3-4:30 pm for a reading/signing/community reception. The library's address is 999 Old Country Road, Plainview, NY 11803. www.poblib.org. Hope to see you there!!
Very last thought: Good fast to those who fast, may we all be written in the Book of Life.
Until then, read LIE:)!
