I didn’t think I’d like this book because it seemed like the plot was too thin and it was just one of those books everybody loved so it couldn’t be that great, right? But it amazed me. It’s got everything you could ever want in a book! Definitely worth a try!

The Hunger Games is ultimate. It’s not the most complicated book I’ve ever read, but one of my favorites! part of the appeal, i think is that it’s so horrific. Children fighting to the death sounds absolutely tragic, barbaric, and fascinating. This is a great book, however, and I’ve read it about 3/4 times(i didn’t have any other books to devour)!

The ending is a bit to … the ending i guess could be a bit better it’s simplistic and i like that, but its a but too quick
