What Was That Book That Totally Pulled You In?
I have had a book craving lately. Yes, I know I am surrounded by books and yes. I have read some fantastic high rating books in my opinion as of late….
Here is what I am craving. I am craving that book that pulls you deep within its pages. The one that you one those first few pages and get a good sense of the scene being set and then….
Suddenly you are pulled fully into the book and you don’t stop to eat and barely stop for a bathroom break, as you read deeper and deeper into the pages – becoming almost one with the book, and the characters. You are there in an almost 3D like way as they knock on doors, get in fights, share their secrets, fight for the cause, when they fall in love,… and when they fall apart. And then…. sometimes…. in the really good ones…. we cry when they cry.
My question I am pondering this evening is what book am I describing here for you? What book pulled you in like this and held you to that final page and you wished (WISHED!) that you could keep turning imaginary pages beyond “the end” so you could know more, be with the book more….
For me…. I found that in all the later books of the Harry Potter series… probably book 3 and on. I found this is Hunger Games.
