The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had a bet with a friend going on that I would be able to finish this book within two days. I did. And I could finish this review within two seconds: AWESOME!
I have to say I had huge expectations about it, since there is such a huge buzz going on about the movie. Luckily it did not disappoint me.
I love the world Suzanne Collins has created. It is rich on detail and I can imgaine it perfectly, though there are not too much details.
I would describe her style as average, readable and very easy to follow. Perfect for a dystopian book like this.
The Plot takes place in Panem, a dystopian society where North America used to be. The Protagonist Katniss finds herself in the Hunger Games, a fight to the death. Only one can win and der chances are not that good. She is a well developed and strong female character. I liked her a lot.
Many different characters with different motivations and character traits perticipate in the Hunger
Games and everyone was well developed and unterstandeable.

I just loved the names Suzanne Collins gave everyone, especially does related to flowers. Everything fit perfectly and it showed how well worked the whole thing was
Wenn I read the plot for the first time, I immediately thought of ancient rome and the gladiators. The roman names supported that picture and I loved it.
I have to admitt I had High expectations for Peeta and Gale, since there was such a buzz about them and the whole the team thing started again. After the first part I thought Peeta was an asshole and Gale just a minor character, but after finishing this book I understand both a lot better and I'm sure there is a lot more coming for them.

Don't ask me on which team I'm on. I don't like this whole "Team Peeta" vs. "Team Gale" thing, since I think all the fans should stand behind the novel as a whole and not bicker each other. And because I cannot decide. There are both awesome. But even the Antagonists in this book are awesome. I can emphathize with everyone and I shared the thrill with all of them.
There were a few brutal scence within the book but they surely needed to be there, because of the whole setting and because it would have felt unreal without them. I'd really like to now how they're doing it in the movie so I'm heading to the theaters like right now :D
I recommend the book to everyone and I'm definitely going to read the rest of the series :)

Love and words
