“"Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you." ”
“1. A nation know as Panem is being punished for a past rebellion in its annual Hunger Games. Through the lottery, Katniss' 12 year old sister is picked. Katniss heroically volunteers to take her place. Katniss and the other 23 contestants must survive whatever the government throws at them. But here's the catch...there can only be one survivor.
2. The book is interestingly plotted and paced perfectly. Collins was brilliant on how she portrayed the heroine, Katniss Evergreen, and made the audience feel for her. It is uncanny how Collins can create such a relationship between the reader and the characters in the story.
3. I would pair this book with the rest of it's trilogy. This would allow for the readers to watch and understand how a character, plot or setting etc. fully develops over time.
4. "Only I keep wishing I could think of a way to…to show the Capitol they don’t own me. That I’m more than just a piece in their Games”

“It is one of my favorite books of all time because it gives me a perspective of a futuristic world where the government rules above all things and as entertainment send 24 tributes to fight to the death.
“Saying that this book surprised be would maybe be going a bit too far. I mean, several respectable people with good taste recommended it. But I didn't expect to become such a believer. Not as great as Harry Potter, but still great. If my reading of the games--a supposedly fair contest heavily stacked in the favor the socioeconomically privileged-- is correct, the book's overarching social themes of inequality are extremely relevant to our current cultural climate. And Katniss is a way better role model for adolescent girls than Bella from Twilight.”William B wrote this review 3 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
