About a month ago I had seen the previews for the Hunger Games while at the theaters. I will admit that the previews did nothing for me. Then I kept reading all over facebook how great the books were, so I decided to give it a try. At 1st I just picked up the 1st book of 3. Many say its the new Twilight. The phenomenom, not the tale itself.
When I began reading the 1st book, I was not entertained and ended up reading 3 other books completely prior to picking it up again. I`m a fast reader especially when its good. After several chapters I could not put the book down. The Hunger Games is about a futuristic apocolypse type America, where children must participate in the Hunger Games. A televised battle where 24 tributes have to kill each other until just one stands. Crazy huh? It is!
Quickly after reading the 1st book I ran out and picked up the 2nd, and so forth. While its different than Twilight, it is just as good. Love triangles, battle, and deceit. I find this is getting more coverage than Twilight however. Jennifer Lawrence (I`ve only seen her prior in X Men first class as Mystique) who plays the main character is gracing plenty of magazine covers, something I didn`t see with Twilight until after the movie hit.
I wound up reading all 3 books in under 1 week. I was determined to find out the fate of this young girl and those who rallied around her. If you have not picked these books up, do so! I promise it starts off slow but quickly pickes up. I will be sure to watch the movie as soon as it comes out.
Have you read The Hunger Games? Are you looking forward to the movie?
