Hungry for more
I picked up the Hunger Games on a whim after seeing it for sale. The first book is worth all the praise. I felt really drawn to the characters. It also made me feel real emotions for the characters as the events unfolded. While the plot does have dark moments, its filled with thrills, chills, suspense and even a spot of humor here and there. Overall a worthwhile read that will keep you gripped till the very end and wanting more.
In my opinion, The Hunger Games rivals Harry Potter in brilliance. Its not magical but hard hitting action. It's a teen novel but I could recommend it to anyone who enjoys action and good writing.
