Let the Games Begin
Let the Games Begin | Niccol Ammaniti
3 posts | 6 read | 2 to read
The world might be in the throes of a global recession but when an author on the brink of despair, an enigmatic musician, a supermodel and a Satanic sect meet with the cream of Italian high society at the home of a Roman property tycoon, the world outside the mansion's walls is soon forgotten. There's going to be one hell of a party. And you've got a VIP ticket.

Clwojick @Crazeedi We have readjusted the points to give an additional 5 pts if you read a book that was adapted into a movie. You may still want to join in on the fun! 2w
Crazeedi @Clwojick well that may change my mind! Thank you! 2w
Clwojick @Crazeedi 😉😉😉 2w
Crazeedi @Clwojick ok I just signed up, I hope I'm not a drag on a team! Will you be sending the info on the way you get points to my email? I've never done this 2w
StayCurious @Crazeedi so excited to have you with us! We will be sharing exactly how to get points closer to December. I can send it to your email too if you‘d like😊 Also, the movie watching is really only a small part of this - you also get points just for reading - even if it‘s not holiday themed. So just by doing what you‘re doing, you‘ll help your team! 2w
Crazeedi @StayCurious that's good to know, I've not done this before, but I'm excited to participate! 2w

Mehso-so

Listened to this on audio &, whilst usually an audiobook fan, I wish I‘d just read this. I think the satire didn‘t come across, which is a shame, because on consideration, it could have been very funny. Think the narrator gave the characters too much dignity! 😂 Some were hilariously absurd, some too unpleasant to be funny. I‘d probably give the author another go, but this was only OK.
