Back in Grade school, I had a particular liking to the author, Gary Paulsen, who produced "Hatchet" and "Brian's winter". Are there any authors that have a similar type of writing style or have the Man Vs. Nature type of book, but containing a target for older audiences? I read the Hunger Games about two years ago and was absolutely amazed by the imagery, and was a bit appalled by the movie. (I suppose I exaggerated my opinions about it as well though.) Stephen King's Misery about the author's survival against a psychotic maniac as well as his (Spoilers) increasing need for morphine (/Spoilers)as he stays stranded in her house.
