After Christmas I read The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I can’t remember the last time I fell so in love with a series of books. While I don’t normally trend towards the best-seller list, I can understand completely why all three books in the trilogy currently top it currently. They are simply that good. There is no way I could have waited for the last two books in the trilogy. I’m just glad that I read the entire trilogy as a whole.
Where do I even begin? The entire premise of the books is eerie, the characters are rich and wonderful, and the political undertones of the book struck a nerve, at least with me. I’m not sure if Suzanne Collins intended for the books to have a political message, but they do for me. It is hard for me to believe the books are considered young adult. They are so rich, so complex, and so intense; it is not what one would normally expect from the young adult genre.
I will delve into greater details, including my favorite characters, at a later date. This is a subject I intended to revisit from time to time. There are just too many themes to explore. In the meantime, I can’t wait for the movie! My brother’s girlfriend K and I have a date to see it. I cannot wait! I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a movie premiere.
