Wow. Simply wow. I am awed by this book and to be dead honest with you, I don’t actually know what to say. This novel was perfection, real, sweet perfection. Tried reading The Hunger Games moment after I bought the whole series but I didn’t like it. Got up to Chapter Four and had to stop. But one time, out of boredom, tried reading it again. I finished it in 2-3 days. Thinking back, I am not actually sure why I didn’t like it back then, but I loved it the second time around, and that’s all that matters.
The Hunger Games is a young adult dystopian novel in the nation of Panem. Lies a Capitol surrounded by twelve districts. To make sure the districts obey them, each year, each district has to send a boy and a girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in The Hunger Games on live TV where they will fight to the death, 24 Tributes. One winner.
It felt like that time, I was probably the last person on earth to read The Hunger Games. When someone used to ask me if I had read The Hunger Games, and I would reply with a no, they would just stare at me. And I’d be like, yep, whilst looking awkwardly at the ground. I am very proud to say that I have read The Hunger Games. It was an excellent, original novel. A hauntingly possible idea, real, fierce, but lovable characters and an abundance of action. The Hunger Games will leave you craving for more, and I am extremely happy that I have read this stunning piece of literature.
The idea, the book, everything was amazing. The Hunger Games was a brutal event that I hope will never take place in our world. It’s a horrifying thought that one day, however it possibly could.
The plot was perfect not for one minute did I get bored. I was intrigued from the beginning but I literally couldn’t remove my eyes from the pages once it was announced that the 74th Hunger Games had begun, that’s when my attention was even more focus than before.
Katniss is my new favourite fictional heroine. In fact she is probably even a role model to me. She stands up for those she loves and will literally fight to the death for them. It was amazing looking at her strategies on how to win and I was cheering for her on the whole way. And since reading The Hunger Games, I even wanted to craft a bow and arrow from the trees in my garden and I want to begin an archery lessons.
Peeta to be honest, I didn’t like him that much in the beginning bu he grew on me, he really did. You could see he actually really liked Katniss and he thought the romance was real but Katniss thought it wasn’t authentic and her viewpoint was that the romance was just for the games and that ending practically broke my heart. I feel so sorry for Peeta and I just want Katniss to make it right because you could see the pain emanating from him when she spoke about the romance strategies and how she wasn’t sure about her feelings for him.
The writing was fantastic. Suzanne Collins is a fantastic author. Her descriptions were perfection and I could imagine everything so clearly, as if it were a movie being played in front of me, and throughout the book it felt like I was Katniss, as if I experiencing all the pain, all the sufferings she was going through, and her need to survive.
The Hunger Games was phenomenal and I just want to shout from the rooftops about how epic this novel is, and I am pretty sure I’ll have thousands of people agreeing with me how amazing it is. Dealing with love, loss, survival, and inner strength. The Hunger Games will knock you off your feet. You will feel the characters’ need to survive and you can feel the tragedy that consumes them when one of the others they are close to dies. You just feel everyhing.
The Hunger Games is perfection
