The Hunger Games book review

HungergamesCover

Though now the Post-Apocalyptic-Young-Adult-Dystopian book genre is very very played out, at the time of release, The Hunger Games felt refreshingly original! Writing this I realize just how impossible it would be to describe The Hunger Games world in a short sentence or two, and that is the truly beautiful part. The Hunger Games is by no means a difficult read, and it is not obscenely long either. Yet, the world it builds inside its pages is both beautiful and horrifying. The Hunger Games does what most dark books do not, and starts itself out dark, and becomes pitch black by the end (that’s not even taking the other books in account). It definitely does not hold back on the violence either, which I love! What I can go without though, is the shitty, flimsy love circle Collins attempts to make believable between Gale, Katniss, and Peeta. I love a good love story as a sub plot in my books, but this one is shitty (Team Peeta all the way, by the way). In the end The Hunger Games is an amazingly written book. I love the fact that it is a trilogy, with each book having 3 acts! I love that it does not hold back from being dark and serious! It is one of my favorite books. Highly Recommend.

  1. Completely agree on the love circle issue! It’s that sci-fi phenomenon. No good science fiction or fantasy book (or movie for that matter) does well at playing out a solid love story along with the plot.
