Review: I've seen a lot of rave reviews about The Hunger Games and so I kept thinking well, I don't know if I'd like it. Every review I've read for The Hunger Games the person loved it, maybe I'll be the one person to hate it. But I eventually caved and read The Hunger Games.
I'm quite glad I did too.
Yep I'm jumping on the bandwagon and I say that The Hunger Games is a great read. Because it is really interesting, the characters are all really interesting.
At first, I found it to be a little slow but then when the games started I was hooked. I did not want to put it down. I just had to finish reading it.
Seriously, if you have not read The Hunger Games I suggest you do. I found myself flying through it and there were parts when I was commenting out loud about it.
I loved 1984 by George Orwell and I thought The Hunger Games had some similar elements with 1984.
At the end of the day The Hunger Games is an amazing read that you should not miss.
I also noticed a lot of Team Peeta, Team Gale things around and well I don't usually state my opinions on the matter but I'll make an exception in this case to say right now I'm rooting for Gale. Yep, not too sure why but yeah.
