I finally finished the Hunger Games trilogy and it was amazing.
It’s hard to describe what the books are exactly about without giving away the story. The genre is dystopian literature. It reminded me of a mix of The Handmaid’s Tale and Harry Potter. The former because of the dystopian elements and the latter because of the story and the world created by the author, Suzanne Collins.
While the main character, Katniss, did get on my nerves at times it was nice to have a strong, capable female heroine unlike Bella Swan.
A fair warning: the trilogy is highly addictive. Immediately after finishing one book, I just had to buy the next and so on.
The movie based on the first book is releasing next year. I cannot wait, but I hope it doesn’t have the same fate as most books turned into movies do.
Here is the trailer:
Have you read The Hunger Games? What did you think?
May the odds be ever in your favor.
They are my favorite! I can’t wait until the movie comes out. I have yet to find someone who hates them (and I’m a librarian).
Awesome! I can’t believe I haven’t read them sooner.
The Hunger Games are my new big addiction. I’ve just finished the first book and gone straight onto the second one, I’m really enjoying it. Really hope the film lives up to the book 🙂
I was so glad that all the books were actually out, so I didn’t have to wait a year to find out what happened next! Hope you enjoy book 2 and 3 🙂
Great review! I love the Hunger Games trilogy – apparently Suzanne Collins worked on the film adaptation herself, so the movie should be pretty close to the book.
That’s great news — I really hope they don’t stray too far from the books.
