The Best YA Book I've Read in a Long Time

Wow. Wow, wow, wow--this book is incredible! Deep and gripping, I couldn't put it down until I was finished. The story was so unique and amazing. It's hard to explain it. It's about a futuristic time when there is one capital city with several lesser cities around it. There was a time when a few of the cities rose up against the capital city, but the uprising was crushed and now the capital is trying to make sure that their authority is never compromised again. As part of this, they subject everybody to the Hunger Games. One boy and one girl from each of the cities have to compete in them. Names are randomly pulled from a certain age group, and everyone has to submit their name. When Katniss' little sister's name is chosen, she steps forward to take her place. This is something no one has done before, because in the bloody Hunger Games, there is only one person to win--the sole survivor.

Beyond expectations!!!!

I read a lot of books. I normally dont write reviews for them. This is my first. Lately, it seems harder and harder to find books with good plots that can keep you interested from beginning to end. A lot of books have the same situations and love interests and so on. This book took me by surprise. The author really pulls you in and you feel like you are right there. Would you make the same decisions if you were in Katniss and Peeta's place? Would you be as strong, thoughtful, and caring when your life depends on it? Would you be selfish, cold hearted, and go against everything you believe in to survive? The description of life in this book is so real and bellievable. The situations that Katniss and others are put in will bring you to tears. There is romance as well. I read this book in only a couple of hours. Bought the second book and read it the very next two days. I couldn't stop thinking what would happen when I had to put the books down. Cant wait for the third book. Im still wondering what will happen!! Must have!!!

A deeper look into the darkness of people's heart

I must say that very few books ever emotionally pull me in, and when I say very few I mean two against the roughly 100 or so books I've read (this is not an overexaggeration either), but by the time I was finished with this novel I could feel that stupid pull at my heart that was telling me I will never forget reading this book and I will never forget the characters. Most of the reason may lie with Katniss to be honest. In the book Katniss hates how the Capitol can just take children away and send them into a game where they have to kill each other. She also finds it sick that the people in the capitol actually sit there and watch the games (watch these people really dieing! Really killing!) and just laugh and bet on it and find it entertaining. My hatered for this kind of thing is the same if not more. I mean really! But here's the thing. The book is good, and not only is it good, but Suzanne really makes you face the facts. I mean watching horror movies isn't all that different. Even though you know the people arn't really dieing, and that they're perfectly fine, how could you stand to see someone murdered like that? And especially when stuff like that really does happen to people. To say that this book had no effect on me besides being really awesome would be a lie. This book made me really look around at what's happening in the world, and the darkness in people, and in myself. I think that I might be being to deep for a review, but thats my thoughts and I wanted to let them out somewhere. And if all this deepness didn't get to you there's romance, lot's of action, and the book keeps you of the edge of your seet the whole time Katniss is in the hunger games (ok well maybe not the whole time, but at least 89% of the time)! I really hope you check it out, because it's a great book! I'm going to get the second one right now!
It is an amazing book. My 16 year old grandaughter ask me to read it. I couldn't put it down. Keeps you right on the edge all the time, but the ending kind of leaves you hanging as there are two more follow-up books in the series. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!!

Excellent read

Very much enjoyed the book. At first was taken back by the story line, but quickly got realed in and couldn't put it down.
