The Hunger Games

So. The Hunger Games. As a friend of mine said, “You either love it, or you hate it.” She was right. Suzanne Collins is a good writer, and I’m not saying otherwise. When I read this book, I was perfectly happy until I got towards the end. The writing was fantastic, the plot original, the characters interesting. It really is a one-of-a-kind book. But the violence. It kept me up at night. Katniss is a tough girl, a hunter and survivor. She’s living in a futuristic setting, in which the Capital controls everything. The world is made up of twelve districts, Katniss and her family live in the last. And every year, the most dreadful event the Capitol could think up takes place: The Hunger Games. Two youths are taken from every district, and forced to fight to the death. When Katniss’s sister is chosen, she selflessly volunteers herself in her place. And she is shipped off to the Capitol, along with the other competitor. If you do not get bothered by violent and bloody books, you may very well like The Hunger Games. And if you do, it’s the first in a trilogy.
