THE HUNGER GAMES by: Suzanne Collins

 Katniss, a fourteen year old, finds herself at the 74th annual Hunger Games; ready to fight to the death with 23 other “tributes” for food and for their life. Can she survive? The reason my summary of this book is so short is because the author has so many twists and turns put in that I don’t want to give anything away. This book had me hooked from the very start. Suzanne Collins puts so much detail and emotion into this book. I give The Hunger Games 5 out of 5 shields. This book is one of the best that I’ve ever read. WARNING! The book is technically classified as young adult. You might want to check with your mom or dad whether you can read it or not. The reason it is young adult is for the violence- there is a ton of it, gore, and some swearing. My mom read it first and said I could read it, but it was on the borderline of what she would normally let me read. I tagged it for 12 and up. It is still a great book! The Hunger Games is the first book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.

Here is a heads up about the Hunger Games movie: It comes out on March 23. I’m so excited! I would highly recommend that you read the book(s) before the movie. I think I might have Peeta, oh, I mean pita bread with dinner that night.

  1. Great review, Sir Books-a-lot. You really hit the nail on the head.

  2. I read this book in one sitting! Sometimes I wanted to cover my eyes like I would in a movie, it was so intense!

    I agree, it’s young adult. It’s 14+ in my house. 🙂 But I can’t wait for the movie.

    …pita bread, lol…

    • Wow, you are a fast reader! Yeah, I almost didn’t get to read it because it was so intense, but I’m glad I did. I can’t wait for the movie either!

  3. I am reading the second book in the series now. You are so right…such a great book:) Pita bread! Clever:)
