Book Review: The Hunger Games

Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins ( Website )
Series: The Hunger Games #1
Publisher: Scholastic
Published date: December 2009
Pages: 374 pages
Format: Paperback
Rating: 5/5 Noodles

From Goodreads:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Hunger Games is a fast paced book that brought me me back in being a bookworm. When I started reading this book, I can't control myself flipping the pages and continue reading. I am a slow reader but this book made me a fast reader. This is simply amazing!

I like Katniss because she's a girl with strong personality and all. She's willing to do anything for her sister and for her mother. She's brave because she takes her sister's place in the reaping. You can also see that she's a smart person because the way she played the game and all. I admire her for being strong, brave and smart. I also like Peeta, he has a strong personality also, I became crazy when he says that the girl her love is with her during the interview with Ceasar. All the characters have strong personalities. Oh btw, I also like Cinna, Effie and Rue. Rue is my favorite tribute aside from Katniss and Peeta.

In all, The Hunger Games is really amazing! I'm really excited about reading the next book, I'm excited to know what will happen to the star-crossed lovers during their tour. I'm so excited!
Favorite quotes:
Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it.” 
“You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope.”
“Destroying things is much easier than making them.”  


  1. Rue is also my favorite :)
