The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Updated: Jul 11, 2020

I know I'm not exactly breaking new ground here by saying this book was good, but it really was an enjoyable read.

Katniss "Main Character" is a very strong and likeable protagonist, and while the concept did seem a little too similiar to "The Running Man", Collins still added enough original ideas to make it her own.

The book is divided into three parts, and while I loved the first two, I did feel it started to collapse under its own weight in the third part.

Without getting specific, I'll just say that I thought the fates of some of Katniss's opponents were rather anti-climactic.

Still, despite limping to the finish line, this was a great adventure and suspense novel definitely worth reading! Can't wait to read next book.

“And while I was talking, the idea of actually losing Peeta hit me again and I realized how much I don't want him to die. And it's not about the sponsors. And it's not about what will happen when we get home. And it's not just that I don't want to be alone. It's him. I do not want to lose the boy with the bread.” /Suzanne Collins
