A novel that channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Red Rising, the first of the Red Rising Series, by Pierce Brown is a thrilling science fiction novel that was published in 2014 by Random House Publishing Group. This current novel is the reprint edition. As it has been compared to the likes of 'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins and 'Ender's Game' by Orson Scott Card, I would really like to read this. It was named one of the best books of the year by Entertainment Weekly, Buzzfeed, and Shelf Awareness.

An overview of Red Rising, as stated on the Barnes & Noble website, is:

"Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.

But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.

Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so."

Pros:

- Named on of the best books of the year by Entertainment Weekly, Buzzfeed, and Shelf Awareness.
- A New York Times Bestseller.
- Exciting and entertaining, channeling the likes of 'The Hunger Games' and 'Ender's Game'

Bottom Line:

I am really looking forward to reading this novel.
