First Sentence: When I wake up, the other side of the bed is cold.
Super Brief Review: A rather dark look into the depravity of mankind, also unputdownable.
Favorite Quotes: It crosses my mind that Cinna’s calm and normal demeanor masks a complete madman.
Slightly Longer Review: I tried really hard not to like The Hunger Games at first. I was worried that I would like the book simply because everyone else did. Once I started reading it though, I could not put it down. It’s dark for sure but you find yourself liking Katniss so much that if she can handle it so can you.
Every year one boy and one girl from each of the twelve districts are thrown into a specifically built arena to fight to the death. There is only one winner. Katniss and Peeta are drawn for the poverty stricken District 12. Peeta displayed a great act of kindness when they were younger. He gave Katniss hope in a time when all seemed hopeless. How can she kill him? With the help of their sponsor and her own sharp wit Katniss will give the Capitol a shock they may not be ready for!
