For the Guardian, Webb named his top ten pulse-racing adventure books, including:
Hunger Games by Suzanne CollinsRead about the other books on the list.
It's a sci-fi dystopia, it's a romance, it's touching and brutal and real. But most of all it's a perfect adventure. Bow-wielding ass-kicking Katniss goes into the Hunger Games arena to save her younger sister from certain death. It's survival of the fittest –a terrifying fight to the death, so addictive and so exciting you'll be gnawing your knuckles to the bone by book two.
The Hunger Games also appears on Charlie Higson's top ten list of fantasy books for children and Megan Wasson's list of five fantasy series geared towards teens that adults will love too.
