Never Saw the Movies – part 1

The Hunger Games Book Cover The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games
Suzanne Collins

The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The 'tributes' are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory. (more via Goodreads)

  • I never watched any of the movies.
  • I bought the trilogy, so I was ‘forced’ to read all the three books.
  • See my other reviews to read how that turned out.
  • Great story.
  • Weird sentences sometimes, but maybe this is because it is the first time I read a book that is narrated in the present, through the eyes of the main character.
  • A lot of adventure, completed with some drama.
  • The drama aspect is probably the reason why some people consider this teen’s or even girl’s books.
  • Drama that is supported by the story is not a problem for me, hence, people who say the above are ignorant.
  • The book was never boring. I was not able to let the story line or the character(s) go.
  • When I finished it, I immediately wanted to start the second book.
  • I was lucky I bought the complete trilogy at once.
  • Buy, borrow or burn? Buy
