    I have got to stop poking fun at this series with memes. Someone take them away from me! Nah, I didn't love this book. I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that. I mean it when I say this book deserves recognition, and honestly, I'd rather people were reading...

    LMAAAOOOO! Thats Peeta folks! xD Hahahahaha, Totally! xD HAHAHAHAHA! Laughed my ass off on this! XD OMFG. HUNGER GAMES. CINEMA. O.O IT.WAS.FREAKING.AMAZING. ? Am I...am I still alive...? o.O *pinches myself* -ouch! Yes, I can stay alive for the next movie. And I ...

    My "Epic Book Recipe" Checklist for The Hunger Games: 1. A sharp and intelligent heroine with just the right amount of emotion who gives in to absolutely nothing and no one? 2. A sweet and sensitive hero who loves and supports the heroine unconditionally? 3. An original set...

    I was forced into watching Mockingjay: Part II this weekend. To clarify, I watched the second part of the last Hunger Games movie without having read any of the books, without having watched any of the movies. Needless to say, I was confused as fuck. So many questions and thought...

    Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children. In a YA book. Two reasons why this book rocks: (a) It is not Twilight, and (b) I really hate reality shows. Seriously, how long would it take for reality shows to e...

    A lot of things are troubling me about The Hunger Games. A lot of things which I more and more perceive and which are not solely connected with this book but with the metaphor behind the words. People attach themselves to fictional freedom without seeing what really something is and wh...

    If I were a teenager or recommending this to a teen, I might give it 3*; as an adult, I give it 2*. PLOT It's a potentially exciting but gruesome story, but most of the characters were rather flat, much of the plot was predictable (it's not hugely original; in particular, it is V...

    For a long time now, I?ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don?t just love this series, but why I also think it?s important. It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people w...

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I've said to a few people that if I wasn't married, I'd have to marry this book. :) I read the 400 page ARC in a less-than-24-hour time period (so quickly that it was never even on my "currently reading" shelf), which I've only done before with HP books, and I've just...

    Fantastically Written? Ooooh yeah! Compelling? Yup! Super Quick Read? Most definitely! Original? Um...well *shuffles feet, since I seem to be a rare non-five star-er* not original at all really.... Man, I wish someone on my friends list here has also read Battle Royale and this boo...

    Clearly Gregor was merely the prelude. Suzanne Collins, you?ve been holding out on us, missy. As an author we were accustomed to your fun adventures involving a boy, his sister, and a world beneath our world. I think it's fair to say that we weren?t really expecting something like ...

    It seems weird that I never reviewed The Hunger Games . I don't know why I didn't when it was a series that completely took over my life for a short while. But recently I've been thinking about posting something in this review space and after just watching the second film (which I ...

    SOME BOOKS I ALREADY OWN WHICH I PLAN TO FINISH BEFORE BUYING THE HUNGER GAMES John Lanchester, Mr. Phillips Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake Steven Weinberg, The First Three Minutes Jean-Jacques Sempé, Le Petit Nicolas Merritt Ruhlen, The Origin of Language Pernilla Stalfelt, ...

    Oh no. You've awakened the beast. It's Jackniss!! Yeah. So maybe Matthew Fox from Lost isn't exactly the person you had in mind when you thought about who they might cast as Katniss in The Hunger Games, but I was inspired to create that after I saw this site called Jackimals. Yo...

    My ?The Hunger Games? week 23rd march- movie is released 24th march- I read this review and end up watching excellent trailers, Later I downloaded the excerpt and kind of liked the first chapter 25th march- I am a proud owner of the book. Yay! 26th to 27th march- I started re...

    I sat down to this book prepared to be captivated in its pages. But I was disappointed. I was always expecting that finally the author would show her genius and knock me off my feet. But it never happened. Yes, it was exciting and entertaining. But it wasn't a truly great book. I c...

    THIS BOOK IS JESUS. ...

    ~SO THIS IS WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT~ THE HUNGER GAMES is a fantastic, breathless and somewhat brutal read that once you start you simply can?t put down again. Initially I had no idea what this book was about or what to expect in terms of YA writing, it had just been recommended t...

    So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent. Before I commence my review, two things: 1) I am generally a fan of post-apocalyptic struggle-of-the-downtrodden literature, and 2) I am gene...

    Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did. This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine's aspect. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. She starts off in her home, a sim...

    "The Most Dangerous Game" meets Survivor. I loved it: deft characterization wrapped tightly around this lean, brutal plot that absolutely grabbed me and hung on. This was one that I started reading in the morning and snarled at all comers until I had finished it in the evening. HIGHLY ...

    ***UPDATE 15 April 2014*** I've now seen the movie...yes, watched the movie of the book I didn't like...and it made less sense than the book! But it was really pretty to look at. Pearl Ruled Rating: 1* of five (p81) What was I thinking? I don't like books about teens. Well, th...

    allow me to be relevant for a moment: oh my god, this book is outstanding!! it is all good things; battle royale, blood of heroes (one of the best movies ever made - dont argue with me), and all the best elements of this survivalist gary paulsen jag i am on. it kept me up way past my b...

    For a long time now, I?ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don?t just love this series, but why I also think it?s important. It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people w...

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I've said to a few people that if I wasn't married, I'd have to marry this book. :) I read the 400 page ARC in a less-than-24-hour time period (so quickly that it was never even on my "currently reading" shelf), which I've only done before with HP books, and I've just...

    It seems weird that I never reviewed The Hunger Games . I don't know why I didn't when it was a series that completely took over my life for a short while. But recently I've been thinking about posting something in this review space and after just watching the second film (which I ...

    I sat down to this book prepared to be captivated in its pages. But I was disappointed. I was always expecting that finally the author would show her genius and knock me off my feet. But it never happened. Yes, it was exciting and entertaining. But it wasn't a truly great book. I c...

    THIS BOOK IS JESUS. ...

    ~SO THIS IS WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT~ THE HUNGER GAMES is a fantastic, breathless and somewhat brutal read that once you start you simply can?t put down again. Initially I had no idea what this book was about or what to expect in terms of YA writing, it had just been recommended t...

    So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent. Before I commence my review, two things: 1) I am generally a fan of post-apocalyptic struggle-of-the-downtrodden literature, and 2) I am gene...

    Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did. This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine's aspect. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. She starts off in her home, a sim...

    So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent. Before I commence my review, two things: 1) I am generally a fan of post-apocalyptic struggle-of-the-downtrodden literature, and 2) I am gene...

    Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did. This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine's aspect. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. She starts off in her home, a sim...

    First of all, I know you're looking at my rating and wondering what's wrong with me. For one thing, this book's gotten at least 4 stars from everyone else. For another, everyone seems to think that it's the best book of the year. I won't dispute what everyone else has said about this...

    So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent. Before I commence my review, two things: 1) I am generally a fan of post-apocalyptic struggle-of-the-downtrodden literature, and 2) I am gene...

    Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did. This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine's aspect. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. She starts off in her home, a sim...

    "The Most Dangerous Game" meets Survivor. I loved it: deft characterization wrapped tightly around this lean, brutal plot that absolutely grabbed me and hung on. This was one that I started reading in the morning and snarled at all comers until I had finished it in the evening. HIGHLY ...

    ***UPDATE 15 April 2014*** I've now seen the movie...yes, watched the movie of the book I didn't like...and it made less sense than the book! But it was really pretty to look at. Pearl Ruled Rating: 1* of five (p81) What was I thinking? I don't like books about teens. Well, th...

    For a long time now, I?ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don?t just love this series, but why I also think it?s important. It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people w...

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I've said to a few people that if I wasn't married, I'd have to marry this book. :) I read the 400 page ARC in a less-than-24-hour time period (so quickly that it was never even on my "currently reading" shelf), which I've only done before with HP books, and I've just...

    It seems weird that I never reviewed The Hunger Games . I don't know why I didn't when it was a series that completely took over my life for a short while. But recently I've been thinking about posting something in this review space and after just watching the second film (which I ...

    SOME BOOKS I ALREADY OWN WHICH I PLAN TO FINISH BEFORE BUYING THE HUNGER GAMES John Lanchester, Mr. Phillips Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake Steven Weinberg, The First Three Minutes Jean-Jacques Sempé, Le Petit Nicolas Merritt Ruhlen, The Origin of Language Pernilla Stalfelt, ...

    Oh no. You've awakened the beast. It's Jackniss!! Yeah. So maybe Matthew Fox from Lost isn't exactly the person you had in mind when you thought about who they might cast as Katniss in The Hunger Games, but I was inspired to create that after I saw this site called Jackimals. Yo...

    My ?The Hunger Games? week 23rd march- movie is released 24th march- I read this review and end up watching excellent trailers, Later I downloaded the excerpt and kind of liked the first chapter 25th march- I am a proud owner of the book. Yay! 26th to 27th march- I started re...

    I sat down to this book prepared to be captivated in its pages. But I was disappointed. I was always expecting that finally the author would show her genius and knock me off my feet. But it never happened. Yes, it was exciting and entertaining. But it wasn't a truly great book. I c...

    THIS BOOK IS JESUS. ...

    ~SO THIS IS WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT~ THE HUNGER GAMES is a fantastic, breathless and somewhat brutal read that once you start you simply can?t put down again. Initially I had no idea what this book was about or what to expect in terms of YA writing, it had just been recommended t...

    So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent. Before I commence my review, two things: 1) I am generally a fan of post-apocalyptic struggle-of-the-downtrodden literature, and 2) I am gene...

    Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did. This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine's aspect. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. She starts off in her home, a sim...

    "The Most Dangerous Game" meets Survivor. I loved it: deft characterization wrapped tightly around this lean, brutal plot that absolutely grabbed me and hung on. This was one that I started reading in the morning and snarled at all comers until I had finished it in the evening. HIGHLY ...

    ***UPDATE 15 April 2014*** I've now seen the movie...yes, watched the movie of the book I didn't like...and it made less sense than the book! But it was really pretty to look at. Pearl Ruled Rating: 1* of five (p81) What was I thinking? I don't like books about teens. Well, th...

    allow me to be relevant for a moment: oh my god, this book is outstanding!! it is all good things; battle royale, blood of heroes (one of the best movies ever made - dont argue with me), and all the best elements of this survivalist gary paulsen jag i am on. it kept me up way past my b...

    First of all, I know you're looking at my rating and wondering what's wrong with me. For one thing, this book's gotten at least 4 stars from everyone else. For another, everyone seems to think that it's the best book of the year. I won't dispute what everyone else has said about this...

    I have got to stop poking fun at this series with memes. Someone take them away from me! Nah, I didn't love this book. I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that. I mean it when I say this book deserves recognition, and honestly, I'd rather people were reading...

    LMAAAOOOO! Thats Peeta folks! xD Hahahahaha, Totally! xD HAHAHAHAHA! Laughed my ass off on this! XD OMFG. HUNGER GAMES. CINEMA. O.O IT.WAS.FREAKING.AMAZING. ? Am I...am I still alive...? o.O *pinches myself* -ouch! Yes, I can stay alive for the next movie. And I ...

    My "Epic Book Recipe" Checklist for The Hunger Games: 1. A sharp and intelligent heroine with just the right amount of emotion who gives in to absolutely nothing and no one? 2. A sweet and sensitive hero who loves and supports the heroine unconditionally? 3. An original set...

    I was forced into watching Mockingjay: Part II this weekend. To clarify, I watched the second part of the last Hunger Games movie without having read any of the books, without having watched any of the movies. Needless to say, I was confused as fuck. So many questions and thought...

    Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children. In a YA book. Two reasons why this book rocks: (a) It is not Twilight, and (b) I really hate reality shows. Seriously, how long would it take for reality shows to e...

    A lot of things are troubling me about The Hunger Games. A lot of things which I more and more perceive and which are not solely connected with this book but with the metaphor behind the words. People attach themselves to fictional freedom without seeing what really something is and wh...

    If I were a teenager or recommending this to a teen, I might give it 3*; as an adult, I give it 2*. PLOT It's a potentially exciting but gruesome story, but most of the characters were rather flat, much of the plot was predictable (it's not hugely original; in particular, it is V...

    For a long time now, I?ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don?t just love this series, but why I also think it?s important. It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people w...

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I've said to a few people that if I wasn't married, I'd have to marry this book. :) I read the 400 page ARC in a less-than-24-hour time period (so quickly that it was never even on my "currently reading" shelf), which I've only done before with HP books, and I've just...

    Fantastically Written? Ooooh yeah! Compelling? Yup! Super Quick Read? Most definitely! Original? Um...well *shuffles feet, since I seem to be a rare non-five star-er* not original at all really.... Man, I wish someone on my friends list here has also read Battle Royale and this boo...
