“The hunger games”

published 11/07/2012

Fascinating premise - filled with suspense

None

Hunger Games What attracted me to this one? This novel has been on my reading list since reading Wickedinrock's review some time ago. The movie was released and I resisted the temptation to go and view it before reading the book. The premise sounded unique and fascinating in the first instance...

not particularly memorable or distinctive

When your job involves recommending books to young people, it's a good idea to read at least a few of the more popular YA books, which is why I originally read Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games'. Recently a friend was lending out her box set of the trilogy and I felt vaguely inspired to read it...

Hungry eyes I love books. I’m a bit of an addict in fact. I will buy books that sound good and pop them on my shelves or in my “to be read soon” pile which is ever growing. Soon I will consume every last piece of space on my shelves with books and this will make me warm and cosy on my insides...

‘1984’, ‘Brave New World’, ‘V for Vendetta’, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and now ‘The Hunger Games’. I am fascinated by novels which present a vision of a dystopian society. ‘The Hunger Games’ presents a post-apocalyptic vision of a North America, tainted by humanity’s past mistakes, it is little like...

Great characters, wonderful storyline, gripping

might not appeal to a more mature audience

The Hunger Games is part of a trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins which was published in 2008. Collins was previously a writer for Nickelodeon working on shows like Clarissa Explains It All, amongst others, before she started to write children's books. The Hunger Games books have become some of...

“A Fight To The Death”

Great Easy Read

Obvious Plot

Introduction:- It was through hearing of the release of The Hunger Games film and all of the hype surrounding it back in 2010 that first made me aware of the trilogy of books written by Suzanne Collins upon which the film was based. I never actually managed to get and see the film so when I saw...

Beginning a little slow

The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is not perhaps a book I would have picked up from the shelf and bought, or even borrowed from the library. The synopsis on the back did not really appeal to me very much, and although you can never judge a book by its cover...

“The Hunger Games”

published 29/05/2012

Addictive, well imagined, 1st person works a treat

Use of Gale, inability to put the book down!

It was early last year that my book addiction was just beginning. I had already purchased several books based on recommendations in the listmania section of Amazon. I was looking for more up to date recommendations, with the listmania section not seeming very lively at all, when I came across...

ended a bit anti-climatically for me.

I'm not normally the sort of person who gets dragged along into the latest craze for the sake of it, preferring to make up my own mind whether I think something is good or not. It takes me a little while to even become aware that something is a trend, so unsurprisingly, the 2008 novel 'The Hunger...

“The Hunger Games”

published 23/03/2013

Good story, thought provoking, easy to read

Maybe a little gratuitous

Amazon’s book description: A fight to the death – on live TV. The game show where you kill or die, and where the winner’s prize is survival. In District 12, where Katniss Everdeen lives, life is harsh and brutal, ruled from afar by the all-powerful leaders of the Capitol. The climax of each year...

None.

Ok, due to the movie adaptation of this hugely popular book recently hitting cinemas it’s hard for people to avoid mention of ‘The Hunger Games’. At first I was wary of the hype, worrying that the book (and therefore the movie) couldn’t possibly be as good as people were claiming. Eventually my...

Released in America in 2008 as a book, I hadn’t actually heard of The Hunger Games until I started seeing advertising for the film. I didn’t know anything about it but soon dismissed seeing it when I heard it was aimed at teenagers. I haven’t really got into any of the franchises aimed at teens...

published 29/11/2012

Fast paced and easy to read, enough depth

Nothing really

Suzanne Collins certainly does seem to be one of the authors of the moment, her Hunger Games trilogy seemingly the latest teen craze, the Twilight saga having come to a literary close even we have one film left to experience. Winning teen movie awards and making bigger stars out of its cast, the...
