by Suzanne Collins
24 teenagers are thrown into a giant arena where they get to fight each other to the death for several days.
What I Thought of It:
I personally found The Hunger Games to be intriguing, suspenseful, mildly satirical, and very entertaining. The book was an interesting way to portray Darwin's survival-of-the-fittest theory (at least for me) in a complete dystopia. Some parts were funny, some were sad--it was a very nice mix. I've never read anything else like The Hunger Games, and I'm looking forward to Catching Fire.
Sorry for the short review--I'm not really in a reviewing mood right now. I do have one question for everyone who reads my blog: do you think I should add ratings on my book reviews (ie. one star, two stars, three stars, etc.) ?
