Review – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

– The Hunger Games

Holy.  Crap.

This book is good.  No, this book is excellent. This is probably one of the best book I’ve read in the past year.

The Hunger Games are a yearly televised event put on by the capitol of Panem.  There are 12 districts in Panem, not including the Capitol, but there used to be 13.  District 13 tried to start a war against the injustices of the Capitol and the Capitol blew it to bits and then established the Hunger Games to keep all the other districts in line.  Each year a boy and a girl are chosen from each district to compete to the death.  There is only one winner and they can only claim their prize after all the other players have been killed. The names of the children are all put in a lottery and at 18 your name is taken out.  This year, Katniss’s precious younger sister Prim is elegible, and when the unthinkable happens and her name is called, Katniss nobly takes her place in the games.  Katniss must survive the torturous games, and along the way finds allies and enemies in the most unlikely places.

Once again: HOLY CRAP.  The premise is interesting enough, but the book itself was freaking awesome.  It was intelligent, frightening, sad, and awesome.

I don’t even have anything intelligent to say about it because I am so blown away.  So just go read it if you haven’t, because you will not be sorry.

95% – read. it. now.
