    1. I have got to stop poking fun at this series with memes Someone take them away from me Nah, I didn t love this book I know I m in the minority, and part of me is glad about that I mean it when I say this book deserves recognition, and honestly, I d rather people were reading this and following a heroine as independent as Katniss, rather than a simp like Bella or Bethany The Hunger Games is high quality YA, intelligently written, and despite its flaws it s worthy of success Here s where I become [...]

    4. I was forced into watching Mockingjay Part II this weekend To clarify, I watched the second part of the last Hunger Games movie without having read any of the books, without having watched any of the movies.Needless to say, I was confused as fuck.So many questions and thoughts ran through my mind as I watched the movie Why is Peeta so thin Did that huge ass bruise really disappear from her neck the next day Is Katniss supposed to look like she s about to burst into tears at any given moment, or [...]

    5. Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children In a YA book Two reasons why this book rocks a It is not Twilight, and b I really hate reality shows Seriously, how long would it take for reality shows to evolve from Survivor to Hunger Games Yes, this book is full of imperfections It often requires a strenuous suspension of disbelief It can cause a painful amount of eye rolling and shaking fist at the book pages Its style is choppy a [...]

    6. A lot of things are troubling me about The Hunger Games A lot of things which I and perceive and which are not solely connected with this book but with the metaphor behind the words People attach themselves to fictional freedom without seeing what really something is and which unfortunately is here to stay because you can t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep You can t make a shift on a deeper level, if the only thing that attracts you to this book is a vision of fight, retaliation an [...]

    7. If I were a teenager or recommending this to a teen, I might give it 3 as an adult, I give it 2 OTIt s a potentially exciting but gruesome story, but most of the characters were rather flat, much of the plot was predictable it s not hugely original in particular, it is VERY similar to the Japanese Battle Royale , and there were too many flaws in the plot I fail to understand its very high ratings.Post apocalyptic America Panem is divided into a wealthy and technologically advanced Capitol and tw [...]

    8. For a long time now, I ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don t just love this series, but why I also think it s important It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people who are different from you how you are the Capitol audience But, it is important as a story about girls I had not initially thought about articulating that point because it seemed so obvious to me, and I am bad at recogniz [...]

    9. I LOVE THIS BOOK I ve said to a few people that if I wasn t married, I d have to marry this book I read the 400 page ARC in a less than 24 hour time period so quickly that it was never even on my currently reading shelf , which I ve only done before with HP books, and I ve just officially put the first book on my 2008 favorites shelf I feel pretty safe in saying that if this isn t still my favorite book of the year when next January rolls around, that I ll eat a hat As soon as I finished reading [...]

    10. Fantastically Written Ooooh yeah Compelling Yup Super Quick Read Most definitely Original Umwell shuffles feet, since I seem to be a rare non five star er not original at all really Man, I wish someone on my friends list here has also read Battle Royale and this book The Hunger Games WAS pretty fantastic, hence the four stars though I would have given 3 1 2 if the choice was available I ate it up, shouting into other rooms and offices that I was going to be shoving the book into their hands as s [...]

    11. I don t know how to say it exactly OnlyI want to die as myself I don t want them to change me in there Turn me into some kind of monster that I m not I keep wishing I could think of a way to show the Capitol that they don t own me That I m than just a piece in their Games You have a remarkable memory I remember everything about you You re the one who wasn t paying attention So, I really really liked this book Of course, I loved Peeta How can I not He is perfect But Katniss Why She is so strong [...]

    12. Clearly Gregor was merely the prelude Suzanne Collins, you ve been holding out on us, missy As an author we were accustomed to your fun adventures involving a boy, his sister, and a world beneath our world I think it s fair to say that we weren t really expecting something like The Hunger Games At least I wasn t But reading it gave me a horribly familiar feeling There is a certain strain of book that can hypnotize you into believing that you are in another time and place roughly 2.3 seconds afte [...]

    13. It seems weird that I never reviewed The Hunger Games I don t know why I didn t when it was a series that completely took over my life for a short while But recently I ve been thinking about posting something in this review space and after just watching the second film which I think was amazing and better than the first , now seems like as good a time as any to talk about why I love Katniss and nearly everything about this series.I gave this book four stars back in 2011 and I m going to leave th [...]

    14.

    15. Oh no You ve awakened the beast It s Jackniss Yeah So maybe Matthew Fox from Lost isn t exactly the person you had in mind when you thought about who they might cast as Katniss in The Hunger Games, but I was inspired to create that after I saw this site called Jackimals You might want to wait to visit it, though, because it can suck you in like an unexplained time warp flash.I was also inspired to create the Jackniss after I read a discussion that deeply disturbed me.Somewhere, possibly on , I r [...]

    16. My The Hunger Games week23rd march movie is released24th march I read this review and end up watching excellent trailers, Later I downloaded the excerpt and kind of liked the first chapter25th march I am a proud owner of the book Yay 26th to 27th march I started reading the bookThis is how I thought it would go Once I would start reading it, I would just be sucked into it and finish the book remaining awake until early hours of morning, with my bloodshot red eyes.This is how it went I started it [...]

    17. I sat down to this book prepared to be captivated in its pages But I was disappointed I was always expecting that finally the author would show her genius and knock me off my feet But it never happened Yes, it was exciting and entertaining But it wasn t a truly great book I could not stop comparing this to Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Like Fahrenheit 451, it was a dystopian novel set in the future, but Fahrenheit 451 had significant symbolism on every page, paragraph, and even half the sentenc [...]

    18. SO THIS IS WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES is a fantastic, breathless and somewhat brutal read that once you start you simply can t put down again Initially I had no idea what this book was about or what to expect in terms of YA writing, it had just been recommended to me by so many people and had such a buzz surrounding it that I had to find out for myself why Well let me say I was not disappointed and have now joined the legions of Suzanne Collins fans in awaiting her next instalme [...]

    19. So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent Before I commence my review, two things 1 I am generally a fan of post apocalyptic struggle of the downtrodden literature, and 2 I am generally a fan of imposing female characters Now then.I would agree with those who suggested that this book is Twilight in a Battle Royale setting The characters are admittedly likeable although that s arguable , but tha [...]

    20. Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did.This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine s aspect Her name is Katniss Everdeen She starts off in her home, a simple, poor area of the land She is the provider for her mother and sister with her hunting skills To protect her younger sister, she is sent to the capitol, along with local boy Peeta, to participate in the annual Hunger G [...]

    21. The Most Dangerous Game meets Survivor I loved it deft characterization wrapped tightly around this lean, brutal plot that absolutely grabbed me and hung on This was one that I started reading in the morning and snarled at all comers until I had finished it in the evening HIGHLY RECOMMEND wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I m only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel s presence on my bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can t believe I just said hea [...]

    22. UPDATE 15 April 2014 I ve now seen the movies, watched the movie of the book I didn t liked it made less sense than the book But it was really pretty to look at.Pearl RuledRating 1 of five p81 What was I thinking I don t like books about teens Well, that s not entirely trueI am not a Serial Killer is about a teen boy who s sure he s the evilest thing ever born, is told from his PoV, and yet that gets darn close to 4 stars I don t like books about teen girls Well, that s not entirely true, either [...]

    23. allow me to be relevant for a moment oh my god, this book is outstanding it is all good things battle royale, blood of heroes one of the best movies ever made dont argue with me , and all the best elements of this survivalist gary paulsen jag i am on it kept me up way past my bedtime last night, because i could not stop reading, even though my eyes did not want to be awake and now we veer, as ever, into the personal this book is my comeuppance i suppose it is factually my second comeuppance i us [...]

    24. First of all, I know you re looking at my rating and wondering what s wrong with me For one thing, this book s gotten at least 4 stars from everyone else For another, everyone seems to think that it s the best book of the year I won t dispute what everyone else has said about this book, because it s not a complete disaster It s just that it s one of the worst novels I ve ever read The story begins great I love the dystopian setting, even if it is a bit unrealistic Katniss is a great protagonist [...]

    25. What was once North America has been reduced, by what we are not told The new country, Panem as in the bread part of Rome s Bread and Circuses, or supposedly, Pan America is not exactly a fun place to live A decadent Capitol rules over 12 subservient, worker districts Katliss is a 16 year old who lives with her depression incapacitated mother and her 12 year old sister, Prim, whom she loves than anything She lives in the coal producing District 12, a sooty place in the former Appalachia where l [...]

    26. I started this book thinking the idea was preposterous a government choosing to squelch rebellion by forcing its citizens to give up their children as contenders in the ultimate reality show of death to the last survivor Yeah right, and yet it reminded me a lot of the absurdity of the Nazi party, child armies in Africa, and even back to the gladiators of the Roman empire I realized I believed a government could be this arrogant and wrathful, that society could be this absurd, that the common peo [...]

    27. When it comes to The Hunger Games, I feel like I m walking into the ballroom in my tuxedo with a bottle of champagne in each hand only to find no one there except for a lone janitor sweeping up confetti along with a couple of people passed out under tables and there s only a bottle of cr me de menthe left at the bar In other words, I m late to the party.Since I m so tardy, I don t think there s anything I can add, particularly since YA isn t my usual thing So I ll just give it four stars and not [...]
