The Hunger Games

Posted on: January 15, 2012

I finished yet another book! It makes me really happy that I have time to read, and to read so much. I read the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins  in like two days. :)

I admired Katniss a lot. She’s very strong and clever. Her situation with her mother was a bit strange, but I felt really bad for her when she was starving. I didn’t like Peeta much in the beginning of the book and it wasn’t until they were dying in the cave that I liked him at all. He’s still incompetent and not skilled at living in the woods at all. But once they were acting like lovers I was happy for them. I think that Katniss loves Gale, but she just never let herself before. I hope they can get together in the next book. I loved Rue a lot. She was so tiny and useful and loyal and cute. She reminded me of not a monkey, but I’m not sure what. haha I just picture a small woodland animal. and I liked Thresh a lot. He seemed really loyal and nice. Of course, the Career Tributes were disgusting. And all the parts where they were poisoned was terrible. And although Haymitch was gross and drunk in the beginning, he really pulled through for Katniss, so I liked him by the end. Cinna was always one of the best. I was glad that he wasn’t crazy haha.

I loved how Katniss fought with a bow and arrow. I don’t know why I like it so much in like everything. haha. Reading things like this makes me really wish that I knew how to fight like them. I get the same feeling when I play video games or when I read any of the Tortall books. The adventure and fighting. I don’t know why I like it that much lol. But then again, fighting, especially with swords or bows is so utterly useless in life today. x.x I’ll get over it eventually.

I’m not really sure how to judge if it was good writing or not, but it definitely made me want to keep reading. At the end of a chapter my heart clenched and I was excited or worried for what was to come. I can understand why people love these books. they’re so intense and emotionally charged its crazy. I hope I can find the motivation to read the other books soon. but until then, I’m going to re-read the Percy Jackson books and finally read the Last Olympian
