The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I didn't think I would like this book based on how it was described to me so I didn't even give it a chance for awhile. I decided to give it a chance after everybody at work started swapping the books around and especially after one of my co-workers stated that she "doesn't read...period". I borrowed the series from a friend and finished the book in 3 days (probably would have been 2 if I didn't have to work or need sleep lol). I felt like I was Katniss. It's been awhile since a book has made me feel like this. The emotions she felt I felt. You instantly fall in love with all of the main characters.
I cannot wait to see the movie (the previews didn't really catch my interests either) so that I can see the imagery of the pre-Games celebrations come to life. From Effie's pink hair to Peeta and Katniss' costumes to the moment when Peeta reveals his secret!!! or at least I hope they show all of that!! I also can't wait to see the Games. I'm not one for blood and gore and I know there will be a lot of it but I am more interested in seeing Rue and her quickness and how the contenders look. I also want to see these mutations and if they are like I pictured in my head.

If you had doubts I highly recommend you read The Hunger Games. At least give it 3 chapters like I do any book. If after 3 chapters you cannot get into the book it isn't for you. Happy Reading :)
