The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I didn't know what to review today and since I'm absolutely exhausted for last night's Oscar telecast, and I am also most happy for Jennifer Lawrence, I have decided to go with The Hunger Games.

This is a book that needs no introduction, everyone has heard or read or watched The hunger games, but, specially to those who have not read it, here's my personal review of the book.

The Hunger Games is narrated by Katniss Everdeen, that means that it's written in firs person. Now, I'm not a particular fan of this kind of writing but I have to say that Hunger Games does it so good that you actually have the feeling that it could not have been written in any other way. The story itself, as you know, is pretty interesting. It is set in a very detailed ruined world in which you get to know how society has evolved after a terrible war that put an end to the way people lived their life's.

Suzanne Collins achieves something that to me is essential in this kind of books, she gives the reader such a strong main character and puts you in all kind of situations that are so organic that feel so real  that you just can't put the book down. There are a lot of characters here, most of them are very interesting, some are not (as always happens), but well, perfection doesn't quite exist right?

Now, there is one particular point in the book that I never liked, especially after watching it translated into the screen. If you have not read it, this might be a spoiler: The mutants at the end of the story seem so pointless that you want to forget about them the moment you close the book, but aside from that, i love it.

I will most likely be reviewing both CATCHING FIRE and MOCKINGJAY, wait for it!

MadHatterSay: Read it!
