My mom actually read these books long before I even thought about reading them. She had told me she thought I would like them, but I brushed her off. I didn't think I had the time to waste reading a series that would probably just be a let down in some way.
I was wrong.
Before ever charging my kindle to start reading the first book, I had seen the comercial for the film coming out soon. I was instantly intrigued.I knew immediately I was going to read those books before I watched the movie. Everyone knows the books are always better than the movie, right? We will see. I started the first book titled, "The Hunger Games"by Suzanne Collins. I couldn't put it down. It was so different from all the fluffy things you can pick up and read these days. It was right up my alley. I suppose I'm a slightly dark person. These books delve into a darker side of humanity. If you are looking for an uplifting or lighthearted story these are not for you. If you enjoy great writing, imagination, sitting on the edge of your seat to find out what will happen next. You will be like me. To say I love these books is really not the right word. "Appreciate" is more accurate. I appreciate the author's courage in writing a story that has so many twists and turns that won't always make the reader happy, but tell the story well.
I believe I read the whole trilogy in about a week. Which is fast for me, having a busy 2 year old running around. I ditched house work, chores, neglected my hubby to finish the series. I had to know how it all ended. I recommend this book, but first clean your house, get your meals planned, because you won't be able to stop reading once you start! Pick up the first book or your kindle, and hang on tight for the roller coaster of ride that is, "The Hunger Games"
