Review

Praise for THE HUNGER GAMES

"I couldn't stop reading." --Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly"

"The Hunger Games is amazing." --Stephenie Meyer

"Brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced." --John Green, "The New York Times "Book Review

Praise for CATCHING FIRE

"Whereas Katniss kills with finesse, Collins writes with raw power." --"Time Magazine"

"Collins expertly blends fantasy, romance and political intrigue." --"People Magazine"

Praise for MOCKINGJAY

"Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire." --"Entertainment Weekly"

"Suspenseful... Collins' fans, grown-ups included, will race to the end." --"USA Today"

"At its best the trilogy channels the political passion of 1984, the memorable violence of A Clockwork Orange, the imaginative ambience of The Chronicles of Narnia and the detailed inventiveness of Harry Potter." --"New York Times" Book Review

"Unfolding in Collins' engaging, intelligent prose and assembled into chapters that end with didn't-see-that-coming cliffhangers, this finale is every bit the pressure cooker of its forebears. [Mockingjay] is nearly as shocking, and certainly every bit as original and thought provoking, as The Hunger Games. Wow." --"Los Angeles Times"

* "This concluding volume in Collins's Hunger Games trilogy accomplishes a rare feat, the last installment being the best yet, a beautifully orchestrated and intelligent novel that succeeds on every level." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My teenage sister recommended this to me so I thought I'd try it. I loved it so much that I read it in one day straight, and then went and bought the next 2 and read both of those in a day each. This is teen fiction done at its best. I've ended up having great conversations with my sister about propaganda and all sorts of things she'd never really thought about before. making these things accessible to teenagers whilst having writing and a story that appeals to all ages is a rare gift :)

The story begins with the reaping and Katniss volunteering to take her sister’s place. Written in the first person singular we know her thoughts, feelings and motivations. “How could I leave Priim, who is the only person in the world I’m certain I love?”

Like many dystopian novels this world is ruled by an oppressive regime which seeks to remind their citizens of the price of rebellion. Every year they take a boy and a girl from each district to fight in the gladiatorial arena. The leader is this regime is President Snow, an ironic name given that he is anything but pure in his motives. His symbol appears to be genetically modified white rose, heavy in its perfume it disguises the smell of blood, caused by the poison he made his enemies drink over the years. Almost like a sinister and benevolent Stalin, who rids himself of the competition, not quite the night of the long knives, but just as deadly.

The subsequent books in the series give more detail about the rebellion. There is the presumed destruction and abandonment of district 13, now the rebel base. The Quarter Quell where victors of the games compete in a special anniversary tournament. At first I felt this was merely a repetition of the themes of the first book, but it soon becomes clear these games are less of a competition and more about working together in support of the rebellion.

When the force field surrounding the arena is destroyed Katniss and her allies are rescued, but Peter is captured and tortured by the Capitol. Used in their propaganda war, his mind is manipulated so much that he no longer knows what is real. When he is rescued he becomes a liability, even trying to kill Katniss. Eventually the balance of his mind does return, but you do feel he’ll be forever scarred.

Despite describing a tradition going back to the Roman gladiatorial games, that has been rehashed countless times since, the Hunger Games manages to approach it in an entirely magical and new way. What’s more, in such a way that proves to be very appealing to young adults and teens. The main protagonist, Katniss, is completely riveting, interesting and relatable. This mix of excitement, character and brutal action (that remains very much human) drives the success of this novel – with equal appeal across gender, age, and interests.

Well-written, well-paced, enjoyable, a page turner. Any book that I want to pick up and continue with is on to a good thing. I enjoyed the story, characters and twists.

I wasn't so keen on the use of the present tense - I'm so used to reading novels in past tense that this regularly grated. I was also a bit surprised at a few errors, considering the book will have been edited so many times and made so much money - publishers cutting back on polishing books? For example "I know one has found me and the others will be honing in". Should be "homing in" (though it is a common error). There's also some badly-planned sections that come across as unconvincing placeholders. For example, Katniss decides she wants to hunt alone because Peeta is noisy, then come back for him, but doesn't think he'll agree. She hasn't said anything about it aloud but immediately he states that's what she should do, for those reasons. It's the kind of thing an author writes because they have an omniscient view, but later editing should remove the too-obvious god hand.

I should also go and fuss the big grey thing stood in the corner. When I started reading The Hunger Games I knew little about it, having avoided mentions and spoilers and films. I just had a vague thought that it was popular and was dystopian sci-fi, maybe like 1984 – I switched off whenever Hunger Games was mentioned online to avoid knowing more. As such I was surprised as I read it that it seemed so familiar – and immediately connected it with Battle Royale. I kept thinking “Wow, that’s similar, surely it can’t be an accident?” Suzanne Collins says she never read Battle Royale or knew of it as she was writing Hunger Games. I can accept that, though it still seems strange to me.

First off, I must say that this book is not for young children. It's quite graphic in parts, without being gross. The Hunger Games is simply one of the best books I have ever read, and I have read many books over the course of my 39 years. It's not a twee romance, although there is a love story, it's well written, and doesn't detract from the story.

That's why we read - to find good stories, and I was engrossed from the first page to the last. The last book to affect me that was was Stephen King's Desperation, and yet, while that was one of King's best, this is even better.

I'm happy to say I missed the film in the cinema, because reading the book was such a joy, I'm notw looking forward to the film on DVD. Suzanne Collins has wrote believable characters in a world we can understand. I would describe the story as a mix between Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four, King's (writing as Bachman) The Running Man, and TV's the Crystal Maze.

Much has been said about the rather grisly theme of children killing children - true, although the story is so good, you almost forget about it.

The twists and turns are magnificently paced and introduced, creating a non stop tension throughout the book. My heart beat quickened at some scenes, such was the quality of the writing here.

Bravo to Suzanne Collins. This slots into my top ten books ever. Thank you, Ms Collins!
