The Hunger Games

December 17, 2008
The book I was reading called The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was very interesting. I thought some parts were very suspenseful, such as when the Hunger Games started, and even before. Not only that this author used some very interesting vocabulary to tell what's going on or to describe someone, or something. The plotline moved on very smoothly, and I didn't find any thing slow.

This book is about 12 areas in a place called Panem that does these traditional battles to put the skills of citizens to the test. Each year the capital wants one boy, and girl from each district to come and perform in this Game. This game is a life and death matter related. Their ages range from twelve to eighteen years of age. One of the characters named Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, and she does many things to keep her mother, and her younger sister alive, such as trying to feed them. In their district the major randomly drew a person, and it was Katniss's younger sister. She steps up and takes her sister's place. Now Katniss is in a life and death situation, and losing would mean death.

What I thought was really good about this book is the vocabulary, and the plotline. I like the vocabulary because the author seemed to know when to use it. The author used the interesting words when she wanted to describe someone or to tell what's going on. The plotline seemed pretty straight forward, and thrilling. I would recommend this book to people who like science fiction or action.

That is my favorite book I have ever read. It is amazing! If you are considering reading it do it. You might end up reading it twice in a row.
