Seriously? I Read That?

Posts Tagged ‘The Hunger Games

hungergamesI was starting to feel like the only one in YA-lit land that hadn’t read The Hunger Games. That feeling soon turned into “well, it’s probably overhyped anyway…”

Sour grapes, and all that.

Let me just say, wow! This lived up to the hype. I didn’t want it to end. I was completely captivated by the dystopian world Suzanne Collins created.

Katniss is a great character, strong and likable. There’s compelling amounts of drama and a nice dash of romance. Sometimes in books like this, romance can seem forced, included only to appeal to teenage girls. Not so in this case. Katniss and Peeta’s love story adds another dimension to their fight to survive the Hunger Games, the brutal reality show competition used as a means of control by the tyrannous government of Panem, formerly North America.


The Hunger Games
is just wonderful. I can’t wait for the sequel.

Rating: 5 mockingjays out of 5.
