Hello everybody! Today I will be sharing my thoughts about the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I hope that by the end of this blog post I might have convinced you to rush to the book store and get these wonderful books (if you haven’t already)!
One word. Three syllables. A-ma-zing! This trilogy blew me away. If I have had the time, I would have finished the whole series in three days! Who knew that I would enjoy dystopian sci-fi! Every book was a page turner and I seriously can’t believe that… oops! No spoilers ^o^! But I will give you the general idea of what this trilogy is about. The main character is the sharp, dauntless (but not so sweet) sixteen-year-old girl, Katniss Everdeen and every year, there is an annual ‘celebratory’ event called the Hunger Games which is held in the Capitol (you will learn more about this place when you read the book). Two children from each of the twelve districts, one boy and one girl, are sent to compete in these games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed. So when Katniss volunteers to replace her sister, she takes it as a death sentence! Enticing, isn’t it! And yes,I know that if you haven’t read this book yet you will think that I have gone crazy – trust me, I was once a complete newbie and had no idea of what the Hunger Games was about. My advice, act like you understand, you will (eventually) *ahem*! Another piece of advice is to purchase this trilogy, grab a cup of hot chocolate, jump, actually no. Bad advice if you are holding a cup of hot chocolate. Let me start again. Sit on the comfiest seat in your house and read these books!
Until next time.
With much love,
