Hild by Nicola Griffith

alisa11, May 19, 2014

This is now my favorite. Favorite novel, favorite historical fiction, favorite Nicola Griffith product. I keep seeing the word "transported" in reviews of this novel and it is so apropos. The story telling takes you there, her descriptions are so vivid, you can see it, feel it, smell it, and be there! And it is a full view of the culture, not just a male dominated “men on horses, history book” story. Everything from cooking, weaving, planting, creating a hedge, smithing to medicine is delved into. It is so very rich!! The only thing that made me sigh was that it ended and the next book is not done yet.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)

Post apocalyptic fictions is one of my favorite genres and this story and its follow on stories quickly rose close to the top of my favorites list. The question of how our society will evolve if torn almost completely apart is a fascinating one. This dystopian society’s effect on its poor, it’s celebrities, its fashion and ultimately it’s youth is intriguing. What would you do if you were thrown into a gladiator style futuristic arena as tribute from your region at the age of 16, knowing there could only be one winner and all the others would die?
