I was super psyched to finally read The Hunger Games since it's been very highly recommended by other book bloggers. And yes, it didn't disappoint! In fact, it exceeded my expectations!
The novel is set in the future, specifically, in Panem, which as the description says, is the remains of what used to be the United States. Sounds very gloomy, right? That was my initial reaction too. For a moment there, I started to doubt if I would like the book as much as the other book bloggers did. But as the story progressed, I found myself turning the pages more and more quickly, especially when The Hunger Games began.
I really liked Katniss as a character. In fact, I'd say she's now one of my favorite female protagonists! At such an early age, she had to learn how to be tough for her family's survival. I loved that despite the fact that she had to be so mature early, she's still so totally ignorant about other stuff - by that, I meant boys. :)
Since I don't want to spoil the story for those of you who haven't read it yet, I'd keep this short.
All I can say is it has: fantastic writing, awesome characterization, very solid imagery of the setting, and enough suspense to keep you reading till the end!
Oh, and by the way, I'm on TEAM PEETA! :)
NotNessie of Today's Adventure reviewed The Hunger Games and loved it too!
Want more proof of how awesome The Hunger Games is? Check out what Stephen King and Stephenie Meyer had to say about it! (I know! It's so weird to put those two names together since, well, it's no secret that Stephen King doesn't um, like Stephenie Meyer all that much, but what can I do? LOL. Oookay, I'm getting out of topic here. :p)
Book Love: 5/5
