Book: Rabbit is Rich by John Updike
I probably won't finish, as I don't particularly like his prose. Some of the large scenes with multiple characters talking, however, are quite good.
Book: Tunnel to the Sky by Robert Heinlein
The movie pitch, of course, is Lord of the Flies in space. I'm enjoying. Young adult story. I prefer his POV to the Hunger Games and the other popular YA stuff out there today.
