    A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing: serve a 25-year conventional prison sentence...or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program. He opts for the experimental program, only to realize he has made a horrible mistake. A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, Exoskeleton will leave even the most jaded of listeners quaking in their boots.

    Story

    Very compelling, with scenes of cringe-inducing torture. I found myself saying "oh...oh..oh no...oh no..." a lot! This isn't about gratuitous violence - the torture scenes serve to make you understand how truly awful and hopeless the character's situation is, and also to bring about the interesting twist that I didn't see coming. The ending was somewhat abrupt, but I didn't feel like there were loose ends. Definitely recommended.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Overall

    What a great book! I am usually hesitant to buy/read YA books, I suppose because I essentially think of them as a censored version of an adult book and feel that the story will suffer without the explicit details. That is certainly not the case with The Hunger Games. I was intrigued by the premise of the story and after reading the positive reviews I decided to give it a go. I don't feel that the lack of sex or graphic violence hurts the story, even though the bulk of it is about an innately violent, viscious game. I also like it because it takes a bit of a different spin on the typical distopian novel, which I am generally fond of anyway. I listen to Audiobooks in the kitchen while cleaning and doing the dishes, and I am enjoying this book so much I keep finding more things to clean! All in all it is very good and entertaining. I didn't find it at all "sappy" like some of the other reviewers, but rather accurate in describing the types of fears and emotions one experiences as a teenager. The narrator is excellent as well. I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy.
