Review: The Hunger Games

Editorial Review - - Brian Farrey

In my review of THE SILENCED by James DeVita, I noted that we have a love of dystopian novels. I think it's because we, as humans, like to be right.

It doesn't give the book it's 'wow' because it doesn't show the good stuff if you preview it you can't see pages 65- three hundred and something and you can't see chapter 3.

This story takes place in future America where all control has been taken over by the capitol and the nation has been divided into 12 districts. The districts rebelled, and were punished. Now, each district sends 2 people to fight to the death in The Hunger Games and the winner wins their district food and wealth for the year. Katniss Everdeen volunteers herself as tribute to go in place of her younger sister who was chosen, and goes along with Peeta. There they learn more about what they are capable of and some truth behind the games.

this book contains strong emotions and it's own way of stealing the reader's heart (because that was what i experienced) and contains the pure essence of imaginations which make me feel a part of the book when i read it. i get shifted into that world of tragedy, adventure and bravery also filled with vengeance and blood thirsty capitol. the best part is that how katniss overcomes this disastrous sphere of her life with her counterpart peeta and that's the lesson we learn from the book. ' life may hold a lot of challenges that could break us into million peices, but happiness is what we choose and we are what we choose to be and every person should choose to face his/ her problems and try to live the life given by the almighty to the fullest by overcoming the problems and by smashing our problems with strong will and courage' and last but not the least ..... the book is AWESOME<3
