The Hunger Games


I received this book as a Christmas present. I had never even heard of the book, but noticed that there is a movie coming out this year. I started reading it that evening before bed and told myself that I’d stop at the first good stopping place. Six hours later I finally found the last page of the book and decided that was the best stopping point I could find.


This book was intriguing. I can see why this was picked up as a movie. The story line is engaging and moves quickly. There is a lot of drama and action. Katniss is a 16 year old who grows up in a world where children are forced to participate in a fight-to-the-death “game” that occurs every year. When her younger sister’s name is pulled as a participant this year, Katniss volunteers to take her place. I was drawn to her character. Author Suzanne Collins has crafted an intriguing story that moves quickly and keeps people wondering how this story will turn out. One word of caution, the depictions of the battle scenes are descriptive, so I would certainly think a PG-13 rating would apply to this book.
