Upon the recommendation of some of my virtual friends, i read this book and i have to say i really enjoyed it! It was suspenseful and exciting exactly the kind of book i wanted - nothing too complicated.

Anyone else read this book yet? What did yeh think?

Oh my goodness! I LOVED that book! I loved it so much that I got my book club to read it! Very Happy It was good in so many ways. One thing I noticed that was a little intriguing was the characters names. Did anyone else notice that a lot of names from Julius Caesar were used?
It was definitely one of my favorite books!

I noticed that too Imaginary - i think it was the authors nod to the gladiator games, which was good to see. i liked that she didn't pretend that the idea of fighting to death etc. wasn't purely her idea and she showed what had influenced her

I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this book! It has everything I believe a book should have in it. I cannot wait until the next book comes out. I think it's supposed to be some time this year, but I'm not certain.

Now that I know they are going to have a sequel and a movie I may actually make more of a point of picking this one up. Besides that, everyone I know has loved it!

Sorry for creating a dup thread. I just figured since it was YA it should go here, but I sould have run a search on it. Feel free to combine the threads if needed.

I am soooo STOKED that it's going to be a movie! It's one of those books that you just can't imagine it not being a movie. EEEEEEEEE!

*is so excited*

September is such a loooong time away. *whimpers*

This book was really fantastic. I think we're going to see a lot of 'like books' hit the market as a result of this one.

I haven't heard any rumors on actors but I did read somewhere (I think wikipedia. Which could mean its false.) that the author herself is going to adapt the book for the movie. Which I think is great!
