There are books that you can recommend that everyone read and then there books that you recommend that many people don't read, but others should. This is the later. After having it recommended for a while, I finally broke down and read it when I found it on sale. Very interesting books, but be warned the sex content is a bit high and on the varied side. However, it has a point, has a unique point of view and I enjoyed it. Not many epic fantasy books that get a woman's point of view right.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
It took me less than 30 minutes after seeing the new movie The Hunger Games to download, this second book in the series. I have not read the first, but after seeing the movie – which I found totally engaging – I downloaded the second of the three part series onto my Kindle app asap. It is not disappointing. I'm as riveted from page one as I was by the film. I'm joyous knowing there is a book 3.
Hunger games... Just like with Harry Potter.. If you havent read the book and Just watched the movie you are missing out on so much. The book is: 1) Significantly better and 2) You don't have to wait for the next movie to knows what happens next!
"That's why whenever people try to tell me how their 'insane father' would sometimes fall asleep on the toilet, or occasionally catch the house on fire, I put my finger to their lips and whisper, 'Hush, little rabbit. Let me give you perspective.'"
