The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - review The Hunger Games was DEFINITELY the best series I read last year! I would really suggest reading it if you haven't yet! And it's a good book to.
Stunning, gripping, and powerful. The trilogy is now complete! These books have a special place in my heart. My daughter introduced it to me and they were part of the reason I started blogging.
Or at least started thinking about it. My thoughts have not changed much about the books. I still absolutely love the premise. These were also the first books that made me realize that my favorite genre is dystopian. I had no idea at the time but ever since I cannot stop myself when I hear that a story is dystopian.
Maybe it is the idea that we can overcome, or that the people have to be more than themselves to be better or to get out of the system.
Whatever it is, I love this genre and I can never get enough. Sadly, I have not watched the latest movie. Which is really sad because I do enjoy the books.
There are too many great books out there to take the time to re-read something. Oh to be young again and think you have all the time in the world!
So, my thoughts have not changed much with this one. Actually, I think I like it even more! The writing is so great that they come to life and the movies do it justice by keeping mostly to the story.
Have you read this again? Were your thoughts any different from the first time? Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins Previous review: I was more concerned with not reading them for months, everyone is reading them, so why should I?

One girl and boy from each district is chosen each year and thrown into an arena controlled by the Capitol, where only one can survive.
The children chosen are between the ages of 12 and This story follows Katniss, who at the beginning of the story volunteers as tribute to save her sister, Primrose after she was chosen. Growing up in the poorest district, Katniss has no skills of survival, except hunting and she propels the story marvelously!
Although not always a favorite character in the book, she is put in situations that she must excel at or die. I was constantly on the edge of my seat with this book. All three books are remarkable but what makes The Hunger Games so much more enticing is that the movie is coming out next weekend on March 23rd.
I will definitely be in line for this one!Oct 02, · The Hunger Games was adapted for a film, and the second book, Catching Fire, was adapted for a film. The third and final book, Mockingjay, is being adapted into two parts, to be released in and repectively.5/5.
