Hi guys! I am back today with a review of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. If you haven’t already read it, READ IT NOW! Here are my thoughts! Also, I met some really cool authors at the Texas Book Festival-more on that later!
“I volunteer as tribute!” Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, a part of Panem, a Capitol surrounded by 12 districts that have to participate in the annual hunger games, a fight to the death with two tributes from each district in a vast arena. And when Katniss’ sister Prim’s name gets called, she volunteers to take her place. So the hunger games begin, and the tributes begin to form alliances, trying to stay alive. In a fast-paced adventure novel, Suzanne Collins writes a book that will get readers hooked.
What I thought about it:
I really enjoyed this book. There is so much action and suspense that it is hard to put down. The plot is really well-written, and the characters are very unique. I love dystopian books, and I am sad that I have put this book off for so long. Dystopian is one of my favorite genres because of the fantasy and creative new worlds that the authors create. The hunger games seem so surreal, but the author made it seem real with the world of Panem that she created. I can not wait to read the next two books. I just saw the movie, and it was really great compared to the book. They left out some minor things, but you can’t be exact to the book; then the movie would be too long. I can’t wait to see Catching Fire!
My next review will be The Hunt for the Well Hidden Treasure by Bob Sheard and Timothy Taylor. Look for an In My Mailbox on or around the 15th!
I loved these! I read them all in a week. I have to confess, we didn’t eat very good that week. Wore dirty clothes, too. 🙂
I will say – I want to read these, but the Supreme Judge of Book-Reading (A.K.A. Mom) says NO – too young. 😦
i love these books!! my only issue is that (for me) the second book is to repeditive and the third book goes to fast!! i missed so many things!!
