Thought this would be a good thriller but it was a letdown, Moves slow, ending sucks. Not worth the time.
A good story with a moral point. The science is interesting and the story is well-written.
Of course the movie is never as good as the book, but this is a pretty good screen adaptation of a great book. In a future version of North America (now Panem) the population has been reduced to 12 districts controlled by a corrupt capital government. Every year, a male and female tribute from each district are selected to fight to the death for the entertainment of the privileged citizens of the capital. So much of the book is told through Katiniss' inner thoughts, I was worried this wouldn't translate but it's good! A captivating story told with moral insights. I can't wait for Catching Fire!
Louis Kinkaid moves to Loon Lake Michigan and joins the police force. Soon he discovers that his predecessor was murdered and the killer is still on the loose. When he finally unravels the mystery, he finds there may be no one he can trust.
An early installment in the Alex Cross series. Alex is tracking a serial killer and navigating his family and love life. Well-written and compelling.
