Satisfying Weekend

Reading and eating = relaxing. First rate dinner with friends on Saturday; the company was fun and interesting, the food was superb (and I didn’t have to do anything!) — even the water was extra special! And I was lent a book on food that I have fallen in love with after reading just 1 paragraph. An in depth look at that when I’ve finished it.

Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games is one of the most enjoyable science fiction books I’ve run across in a long time. Ostensibly for teenagers, there’s no writing down to at all — it’s just plain well written. With a different view of a post apocalyptic America, the story focuses on hope and survival and the real nitty gritty of the latter. I can hardly wait to finish the trilogy.

And it was a real treat to bring myself up date with with Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books. As the years have passed his writing has become increasingly spare. The stsory moves effortlessly through space, much like Reacher himself.
