The Hunger Games - a review by Toni

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

I enjoyed this book.  I have been in a reading slump for quite sometime.  This book really got me reading and turning pages fast.   Reading this book actually was in competition for my knitting and violin playing.   At first I was in a bit of an alarm, thinking that it might be too graphic or too unimaginably horrific to read.  I quickly warmed up to the characters and the main theme.  I enjoyed a lot of the aspects of the book. The survivalist parts of the book were compelling also.   I am thankful that the book was not overly graphic in any way as I would not have been able to read.  So at the end of the book, I had only one option left.  And that was to quickly download Catching Fire!

Definitely a fast and entertaining read. I haven't seen the movie yet though.

I also liked this book quite a bit but I really didn't like the love story. I'm not as excited to get into the second book, though I will inevitably do so.
