My Personal Review

The Hunger Games is a very good book to recommend especially for reading about good vs. evil. The book reminded closely to some books including 'Lord of The Flies'. Katniss' character makes the story more powerful and meaningful to all the readers. Ever since volunteering as tribute for her sister was the most powerful moment of all time. The book itself is pretty amazing with drama and unexpected events. Reading from Katniss' perspective feels so breathtaking. The plot is extraordinary and definitely worth reading. I would recommend for readers 13 and up despite the violence and reading level. However, I believe the book is well written and shows the theme more clear. I do not want to spoil it, so I'll tell you this book is worth reading.

People's reaction on The Hunger Games

"This is the second time I have read The Hunger Games! And since reading it the first time round I've wanted to read it again! But I just have so many books I haven't read and it's hard to balance it right but finally I've decided to read them again! The Hunger Games was DEFINITELY the best series I read last year! I would really suggest reading it if you haven't yet!" - The Guardian

"For her first young-adult novel, Collins has mixed together elements both classical and modern to produce a story that, if not entirely new, nevertheless bears her unique imprint." -Matt Berman (Common Sense Media)

"...brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced...a futuristic novel every bit as good and as allegorically rich as Scott Westerfeld's 'Uglies' books." --The New York Times, John Green

"I volunteered!" I gasped. " I volunteer as tribute!" -Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games
