I finished reading The Hunger Games this morning. It was pretty good. It's 90% old school sci-fi, 10% teen romancey feelings stuff - I think that's what all YA is, right? I don't think we had YA growing up, but it's really not that different than the shit I used to read as a kid. Maybe it's more calculated, but I also find it pretty enjoyable to read in a pulpy kind of way. The Hunger Games. Not bad, not bad.

Read a bunch of PKD's short stories before that and was enjoying them, then jumped into "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." It was pretty intense and weird. I switched to the Hunger Games and flew through that shit, but I'm gonna try to get back to Glade Runner. Does he have any other must-read novels that are accessible?
