The Hunger Games by Suzzanne Collins. Now I still haven't forgiven Suzzanne Collins for Gregor and the Code of Claw. That was a horrible ending that ruined the series for me, I'm not exaggerating. Anyways this is about after the fall of North America. Then how a new goverment that sprung up after a war. Their are twelve districts and one capitol and pretty much all of the districts have a bad life. So we find out that the districts rebeled at one point and the capitol to make sure this didn't happen again create the Hunger Games where children from each district are picked and get set in an arena try and kill each other. I still don't get how the hunger games stop rebelion. Rebel and we'll have the hunger games and don't rebel and we'll still have the hunger games huh? She sets it up really well and you get excited for the hunger games and then what. The Hunger games besides the first day is boring. There was no fighting somebody was always at the other person mercy. It started to seem like the main charcter caught phase was "please let it be quick". I admit some of the deaths were really cool and I give them credit for that. Still you have an arena of people trying to kill each other and there was no fighting what so ever just a bunch of dumb quick deaths. I don't get it .Now the best part of the book was the relationships she formed. You liked the relationships so much you might even me sad when some of these charcters die. That's some of the problem Suzzanne Collins trys to work so hard on her charcters that sometimes she forgets to make a good book. She just hopes it comes together and if not well then who cares she made great chracters. As much as I'm insulting this book it was very addicting I couldn't put it down . It was mildy entertaining and still some deaths were cool. I hope that she'll do a better job for the second book.

So I'll give it a high middle of the line.- Average

The hunger games is a great book with adventure, horror and friendship and is a book which makes you so anxious that you just want to sit there and keep reading that book until you get to the very end. It has a very unique plot and a book which i would love to see on the "most read or most popular" categories.
