Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Gamesis an adventurous tale of a future society rebuilt in North America. Katniss has been obliged to take care of her family and their ever-present hunger since her father died. When her younger sister Prim's name is drawn as a "contestant" for the government-required hunger games, Katniss volunteers to take her place. All she has to do to return to her family is be the sole survivor of these horrifying games.

The Hunger Games
I can't remember the last time I read a book (at least one this long) in one day, but I just COULDN'T put this down! It is not a "classic" or a totally literary book, but it was intense and well-written and very interesting. While I did see some parts coming, it didn't detract at all. I would highly recommend this book for someone looking for a thoughtful and page-turning good read.

s-factor: !

Actually, surprisingly few - I don't even remember any, but just in case :)

mrg-factor: none

v-factor: ->->->
This does have some really intense scary parts. It isn't graphic or gory.

Overall rating: *****
