Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


Hey Guys,
Sorry I haven’t been posting reviews lately. I have a whole load of reviews to do. My reading list is massive as well. I have to finish reading Little Women, then I have four other books to read as well! Anyway, here is today’s review:

Book title: The Hunger Games
Authors name:Suzanne Collins
Publisher:Scholastic Press
Date Published:September 14th 2008
Number of pages:374
Part of a series:Yes
Overall rating:
4.0 star

Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

This book is a great book to read. It has everything from Romance to Action. This is a book for all genders. I loved it because of the writing technique. I felt that I couldn’t put it down… so I didn’t. I remember reading this book and its series a couple of summers ago and I remember reading it EVERYWHERE I went! I read it on a dock. I read it in a restaurant. I read it on the beach. Anywhere you can think of, I read it there. When the series finished, I was only 3/4 way through the summer and I just wanted to read and read and read. Which, come to think of it, I still do!

I gave this book 4.0 stars out of five stars because I thought that, it was a great book but it wasn’t my favourite in the series. This is just a personal opinion and I found that many people loved this book more than the rest. Personally, I preferred the final book to the first one because it captures me and I feel more interest to read it.
Thanks for reading the review and I hope you enjoyed it!
Spike
