REVIEW: The Hunger Games

Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Finished: July 29, 2011
Pages: 374
Published: 2008
Format: First Edition

I know it’s about time I picked this one up and I’ve been looking forward to finishing out the series but haven’t had time with all my other books.

The Hunger Games was pretty awesome! Collins did an amazing job creating a world where the children fear for their lives about being picked to play in the “Hunger Games” and fight for survival.

The idea behind this game in this particular society may seem right considering the poverty, but it’s hard to imagine a world where many kids die every year for sport and to crown one a warrior.

Great book and a quick read.
