  • But, as the story goes on and the games actually start to get spicy, the long descriptions of the woods aren’t really that interesting anymore
  • This can actually also get a bit overdone and after a while I got a bit tired of it, but over all I love these books and what makes it so great are the combinations of the different genres in this book
  • If you like the combination of fantasy and reality with action and love involved, I suggest you definitely give this book a try

      “The biggest best seller after the release of Harry Potter” The raves about this book series is unbelievable, everyone who reads the first book just must read the other two immediately. When I read The Hunger Games, I fell in love with it after the first chapter. Katniss is the main character and takes her sisters place in the annual Hunger Game.

      As her sister, she has the right to take her place. Along with Peeta, Katniss enters the Hunger Games and fights for her life in the arena.

      From the beginning of


      the book it captures your interest. It’s got it all, action, excitement, romance, comedy and drama.

      Suzanne Collins excellent writing makes it impossible to let the book out of your hand. The language is easy to understand while you still have to “read between the lines” to help your ways through the book.

      Long chapters always bore me and I was very happy when I discovered that this book had the perfect lengths of a chapter. Every chapter is about 20-30 pages, which you easily read in ten to twenty minutes.

      For the

      fast reader, one hundred pages go by quickly within one hour. My only complaint to the story of this book is that it can tend to have very long descriptions which in the beginning of the book is really great so that you get to know the characters, the environment and are able to build up a picture in your head of what Panem (the country) really looks like.

      But, as the story goes on and the games actually start to get spicy, the long descriptions of the woods aren’t really that interesting ...

      anymore. However when you get through the first one hundred pages, it’s all about the games, Katniss and Peeta.

      An important keyword is; love. This can actually also get a bit overdone and after a while I got a bit tired of it, but over all I love these books and what makes it so great are the combinations of the different genres in this book.

      I can’t really say that it is fantasy since there are really no made-up beings in the book, but what country would actually do something like arranging

      annual hunger games, watching kids kill each other, thinking it’s entertaining for the population? I do not have an answer to that question, but somehow Collins happened to make the right mixture between fantasy and reality to make the entire world fall in love with her books. My personal opinion is that I absolutely love this story and I fell in love with all of the characters from the very start.

      If you like the combination of fantasy and reality with action and love involved, I suggest you definitely give this book a try.

Imagine a lottery. It s sort of like a draft lottery they had during the Viet Nam War. It s sort of like the lottery in Shirley Jackson s short story where the winner is stoned to death.
There are two winners in this Hunger Games lottery, a girl and a boy. Actually they are selected - drafted. Their names are pulled out at random. They get to compete with eleven other boys and eleven other girls in a war- games-type arena. There can only be one winner in the Hunger Games - the person still alive at the end of the games.
We follow Katniss, a girl from District Twelve, the poorest district, and Peeta, the baker s son, from the same district. Peeta has had a crush on Katniss since she was five years old. She owes him for giving her bread when her family was starving. She feels she should repay this debt. Now they might be forced to kill each other.
The pageantry leading up to the games at times resembles a beauty contest, at times resembles training for participation in a less-lethal sport and at times it resembles preparation for a bullfight.
This is a terrifying story, but it s also a life enhancing a story as the 24 children (ages 12 to 18) in the games sometimes form alliances based on friendship or need. It s hard to trust anyone knowing that person might soon become your killer.
There s are lessons in survival here. There s also romance as Katniss isn t sure if she loves Peeta, but she cares for him enough to fight for his survival as well as her own.
