I was very surprised that SM recommended it - but then I realized that they picked her for a quote only because of her popularity (even though it had the opposite effect for me). I learned about the books from the Hogs Head podcast. Travis Prinze - the host, who is well read in Potter, LotR, Narnia books and Wrinkle in Time - raved about it and that is what sent me to the bookstore. I think you can pick up on the love story and focus on that, or you can enjoy the dystopian society aspect of it as well as the survival skills and mind games.

I was very surprised at how much I loved both books, and how quickly I wanted to re-read them.

I do want to start posting openly, though; putting spoiler tags in is getting annoying.
Good point - since the books are still catching on, we should keep the thread going with spoiler tags. On the social group I have in the description that it is a spoiler filled place to chat, so we can squee and discuss freely in there.
