Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Genre: YA, science-fiction, thriller, fantasy
The plot, as most will know, centres around a Capitol that controls the 12 districts under it by way of the hunger games. Each year, two contestants from each district (a boy and a girl) must compete in an arena; the winner being the only one alive.
This book is marvellously written and I found myself engrossed throughout. Katniss is a great protagonist with just the perfect amount of flaws to keep her lovable. And the other characters lend themselves well to the book that I felt every emotion that I’m sure the characters were meant to invoke.
Books like this perfectly demonstrate the conflicting feelings people feel if they are forced to kill. It’s how soldiers must feel in wars. As a result, I found myself tearing up in some scenes and feeling tense with anticipation with others.
Maybe it’s because the characters seem more mature, but I didn’t find myself cringing at their dialogue like I do in other YA books. I, therefore, believe this book is well-suited to both YA and older audiences.
My conclusion - I highly recommend this book!
My children’s book is now on Amazon (title: Naughty Nisha: a Trip to the Park).
