Why not start at the beginning. Like most middle/high schoolers, I despised reading. We had enough required material to read why would I spend my free time doing it for fun? Well that all changed when I was introduced to the Hunger Games. It was 8th grade, I had already seen the movie (which I thought was awesome), and I was in a debate with a friend about how big of a time waster I thought that reading was. They knew that I liked the Hunger Games movie and made a deal. If I read the ENTIRE first book and still didn’t like it I had a valid argument, if not it was settled. I’m not one to turn down a challenge so I took it… and was proven wrong. I had found a new found love and it was reading. It also showed me how much better the books are when compared to their movies.
As for the books, they were fantastic. I loved the amount of detail and the storyline for the most part. When I think of the books there are a couple scenes that are ingrained in my mind. One scene is when Gale and Katniss sneak out of the fence to hunt. The wording and description for that scene was just so vivid for whatever reason. Another is all of the different stages/events that occur in during the games. The way Suzanne Collins is able to set up a scene and the relationships throughout the book is crazy impressive. The way all of the characters are developed throughout the entire series is something that will always stick with me. The one thing I personally wasn’t excited about was the love triangle between Peta, Katniss, and Gale. Maybe it’s because I’m a dude and just want the action… but not that kind of action. On a final note, thank you Suzanne Collins for not making this series 7 books long.
Series overall, a solid 9/10. What was the first book or book series that started your love for reading? - 12 minutes ago
