A Review of The Hunger Games
No fan-squeeing allowed, I swear.
Excellent book, gripping, engaging, a solid five stars.
A few mention-worthy selections:
A love triangle that is NOT the main driving force of the plot.
Mushy-gushy mixed with action in a near perfect balance.
A strong female character quite capable of taking care of herself who is NOT catering to a group of salivating fanboys. (Quite a rare combo these days)
The underlying social commentary that, if you care enough to ponder it, sucker-punches you in the gut when you realize it.
A painted dystopian future described just enough to pull you in, but not so much as to drown you in purple prose.
A second book continuing the series.
Please ignore the following announcement:
SQUEE! They’re making a movie!
Sorry about that.
Anyway, expect the movie review next.
please don’t ruin it please don’t ruin it please don’t ruin it
A great read for teens and adults alike.
My highest recommendations. If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you get a copy and do so as soon as possible.
