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!
