The choices of words are great. There are no confusing scenes.
I love how the author portrayed the candidates. She knows how to make every part of the story move. She knows how to gradually unfold suspenseful events for her readers. It is a great and very intriguing read!

We are welcomed into a world where a new stadium has been built. But in this stadium, an event is taking place that is no ordinary event. Many people are signed up for the first "Suicide Games" where your survival depends on how high and far you can jump. Those who say that there should be more obstacles than jumping, think about it. After you jump for a long period of time, you get exhausted and worn out from it and eventually you fall.
I enjoyed the character background stories and grew to love some of them and hate some of them. At one point I was stifling a cheer for one of them. Give this book a chance, you won't regret it.
This is 'not' "The Hunger Games"! Yet --given the popularity of "The Hunger Games" --is natural to associate similarities.
While reading Haigdj's story-- its easy to imagine a huge stadium with crowds of people --A
'colorful' place--- Hare Krishna's in orange clothes chanting or selling lighters to give off the feeling of candle-lighting --candidates in the game -the smells of food --(suicide dogs) --a baby in a mother's arm --etc.
The 7 main council members have 'colorful-names': white, yellow, red, blue, green, purple, black.
Note: At different times in the story --I'd pause to myself --imagine calling my daughters -or a friend -- by the name of 'yellow' ---or 'green'? How you doing, today, 'green'??? "Want a cup of tea Yellow"? Then I'd take it further --and remember my daughters painting their naked bodies as children. Its amazing the different 'visual's a book can stimulate for readers --(from our past--etc.)
This story feels abstract in the way a wonderful contemporary painting might be -(creating images -visuals for the mind and heart). There are wonderful poems and quotes mixed into the 'Game' reflecting on love, life, and death. ---reaching deeper into our souls.
I would have enjoyed the character of 'Moma',[candidate 0907], to have been developed more. I especially found 'Moma' an interesting character (but didn't get enough of him) -- He had a PH.D in explosives engineering. He was a specialist in bombing attacks. He knew how to build bombs and how to disarm them without leaving a mark. Everytime 'Moma' took a break from being in the story I missed him.
Reading "Suicide Game" in one sitting gave me the feeling of 'being part' of the -community.
