Hi Lisa, I have just sent my mum another reminder about this site. Also, I watched The Hunger Games last night. Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
Hi Lisa, well, I had to look up the word dystopian and its the opposite of Utopian. I've seen some films but never really read books about it, well except the Hunger Games series. Battle Royale is quite good but more gory, Mad Max is similar (Mel Gibson), and the Running Man. I guess 1984 and a Brave New World would fit into that category too, in a way. Ye I like the classics, most of the seem timeless and one can relate them to todays world in many ways.
Hey Lisa, How are you doing? Just returned from Spain. Had a nice time. I see you have 'The Shack' in your bookshelf, have you read it yet? I listened to it at work. Have you read any Harlan Coben before? I know he's popular but never read any of his. How's the new job?
Thanks Lisa! I haven't heard of the series, but they sound interesting. I will definitely look into them :)
