5.0 out of 5 stars THREE REVIEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AGED 12-13, LONDON, 16 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Trilogy) (Paperback)
THREE REVIEWS FROM HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AGED 12-13, LONDON

'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins is a fantastic book for ages 9 and up because in 'The Hunger Games' it has a wide range of vocabulary and has a lot of details such as 'The day is glorious, with a blue sky and soft breeze' whereas in other books they all say things like 'it's a good day' or 'the day is amazing'.

Although the book is amazing it does have its flaws because the book is really technical and harder to understand for younger children such as 'the maniacally upbeat woman' some kids would not understand these words.

If you buy this book I tell you your mind is going to blow with description. Suzanne Collins shows a vast amount of things that make you feel like you're there as well. This book is suitable for 11 - 13 year olds as long as they read books.

'The Hunger Games' is a good book for kids to develop their literature. The book is very detailed and sometimes so detailed that you can picture what is going on. The book tries to make the reader use imagery. The author also uses lots of sensory language mainly metaphors. Suzanne Collins also uses a great range of vocabulary.

The book is probably targeted at teenagers but younger children can also read this. The book is quite complex sio it might be difficult for children below 9 years of age to understand.

Great review and very true, The Hunger Games is a more tricky read for lower ability readers in this age range, but a great read none the less.
