Where should I start? This book is simply amazing. There are no words to describe the genius of Suzanne Collins and her flawless execution of The Hunger Games.
Written in first person point of view, Katniss Everdeen is a seventeen year old hunter girl who lives in a post apocalyptic United States. The country is divided into twelve districts. Every year, a boy and a girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen are chosen from each of the Districts. The objective? A televised fight to the death until only one victor remains.
Yes, i know its seems like an interesting story….but Collins’ genius is not just about how the story is developed, but how she plays with human emotions. The characters are so real that when I put the book down I couldn’t believe that they actually did not exist. It’s the kind of book that when you are done reading, you are so close to the characters you can hardly imagine you will ever be able to pick another book up – for the fear of betraying what has so perfectly been created in your mind. It’s that good.
The Hunger Games, without a shadow of a doubt, deserves ten magic wands.
