Two Worth Attention

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Far North by Marcel Theroux


  1. Steven,

    _The Hunger Games_ is the Feb book selection for the SF Group I belong to. I just finished it yesterday. It's a page-turner and very action-oriented. However, I didn't find the philosophy in the book that one of the blurbs promised me. Perhaps it was too subtle for me to pick up on.

    The Theroux book sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of it or of the author. Thanks for the link.

  2. Dear Fred,

    Hmmm. Philosophy in a YA? I wonder what they were thinking. I see a worldview and a certain way in which there is a kind of thinking that would be comfortable for the YA world (you and me against the mean bad world that grown-ups have made). And there's more and more of this evolving.



  3. Steven,

    I wouldn't call it a worldview--more likely just typical adolescent thinking that many never grow out of.
