The Hunger Game
I knew I was going to own it and not even bother borrowing it from the library. I had heard so many great things and figured I'll read it over and over again. After reading it, I know I'll definitely read it again in the future!
I was impressed with the way the story was told. I really enjoyed learning about the characters but was so saddened and mortified by the way they have to live. You'd have to be really strong, not just physically, to endure a life of hardship such as they do. It's so hard to imagine a world like that, where basically kids are going to fight to the death. That's pretty extreme; however, I really like dystopian novels such as this one. I like reading novels with plots and themes out of the ordinary. This isn't your average romance or mystery novel.
I highly recommend this book. I'm working on getting my sister to read it once she's finished with the book she's currently reading. And I cannot wait until the movie comes out!!
