The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

Rating: 5 stars
Shelf: Now Reading

I can’t even remember the last time I devoured a book with such voracity. I finished in less than a day, choosing to spend the entirety of one evening reading instead of cleaning/cooking dinner/watching any sort of TV like I normally do after work. It was all cereal, ice cream and HUNGER GAMES. I had to force myself to go to sleep and save the last bit for the next morning. And then, it took everything in me to keep from flipping the book back to page one and starting all over again. That’s how good it was.

I was drawn in immediately. IMMEDIATELY. I found a love for the characters in the first few pages that usually isn’t developed until at least a third of the way through a book.

A friend of mine wrote on her Twitter that Hunger Games was more than a book. It was an experience. I wish I had more to write than that, but it’s true. What a wonderful, WONDERFUL book.

Please read it. Please?

    I read it a few weeks ago and that was my same experience! I got a little irritated when I had to cook dinner because I just wanted to finish this!!

    I read it over the weekend! I had so much going on but I couldn't put it down. Book 2 is on its way from Amazon. Can't wait to start it.

  4. I read it and felt like a mediocre writer afterwards. It was excellent for so many reasons. I have book 2 here, but I hear it ends on a cliffhanger so I'm trying to wait until 3 comes out.

    We don't have to wait too much longer for Mockingjay, right?

    I've been meaning to read this book for so long. Have heard such great things about it.
