The Hunger Games
By Suzanne Collins
I love when I finish a book and I can easily declare it one of the best books ever. I don't even know where to start to describe this. I guess this is how you think of it: 1. reality TV - think Survivor where people are pitted against each other backstabbing and outwitting each other until there's only one person left standing; 2. UFC - think nothing held back bloody fighting; 3. starvation - think the kind of world where the rich people have it made and the poor people struggle for food to feed their family. Put all those together, add a little romance and you've got the hunger games. It's an amazing book. It really made me think about our society and how we aren't all that far from the dystopia in The Hunger Games.
This book easily compares to other dystopic books like Lois Lowry's classic The Giver and its companion books and Clockwork Orange. Believe me, it's amazing and definitely worth reading!
