& i’m not talking about fighting off tempting food people!
i’m talking about the science fiction book written by Suzanne Collins. I found it hard to put the book down. I am completely obsessed! I’m lucky that Collins was smart enough to make a trilogy. The book follows a 16 year old girl, Katniss, who lives in a time where the government runs all. Instead of cities, Panem (where she resides) has districts. Once a year the Capitol holds an event entitled “The Hunger Games” where one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 are randomly chosen to fight to the death while being televised. The last person standing wins, and in a time where food is hard to comeby, wins food for their district for an entire year.
Many of you might not be interested in my little book review, but I hope to get at least one other person to read this book, because it was pretty intense.
The book is well rounded featuring violent scenes as well as explaining feelings and emotions. I found the book realistic (although the whole situation is very unlikely) because even though there are 24 teenagers trying to kill each other, there are still emotions involved. They are combative within themselves because killing people is not within their nature as human beings, but they are forced if they want to survive.
Collins did an amazing job fully explaining the situation in this post-apocalyptic time. I was never confused wondering what the author meant by a certain line.
Bottom line is: READ THIS BOOK, WHETHER YOU LIKE TO READ OR NOT. JUST DO IT.
okay, now I feel like I’m hyping it up way too much. You don’t have to read it because it wont change your life or anything, but if you’re frequently bored and enjoy reading from time to time, this could occupy your mind for about two days (its a short, easy read).
