Review: The Hunger Games

with 2 comments

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Me likey: the competition. Me no likey: the love seasoning.

Yes, the love thingy is just a bit and the way it is staged is reasonable but I guess it doesn’t suit my taste. I surely hope that it will not come out strongly in the rest of the trilogy or turn out in such different way.

And yes, the competition is scary. A reality show in which the viewers get to see 24 teenagers kill each other? Luckily it’s only fiction. Oh, please stay in fiction for eternity! I notice that I enjoy the book because I always enjoy the story of competition. You know, like watching Running Man with Yoo Jae Suk as MC (this shameless analogy is brought to you by my honest adoration to the humble and witty MC xP).

Anyway, this first book of the series is recommended to be a weekend reading (since reading it in weekdays would risk in sleep deprivation or uneasiness from having to put down the book for a while.

Cheers!

  2. Reading the wiki article, wow! I can’t help but notice there’s a strong similarity where a cruel game is established by the government as an effort to prevent rebellion. Hmm..
