The Hunger Games (Goodreads)

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I thought that this book deserved three out of five stars. There has been a lot of hype about this book, but I am the kind of person that does not like hype. >:( It is my personal opinion that it is hype that ruined the Twilight saga. I think that since this book had been talked about so much, since everyone said that it was so amazingly brilliant, that I was very disappionted. I kept waiting for that WOW moment, that one part that gave you perspective, made you stop and read it again, etc. I didn't get it. I didn't get my WOW moment. It was monotonous until the end with the muttations. Then it was like, "Ooh! More violence!" Still, just violence? Oh, but don't forget the sappiness. Gotta have that. Peeta and Katniss have to be in a strained relationship, but don't forget Gale! Ooh! Drama! No. No thanks. The only part of the book that gave it substance for me was the alliance with Rue and her death. That was it. Sorry, Suzanne Collins, but to really get a five of five from me, you are going to have to do better than that.

New Covers and a Title Change

I Will Save Her has now been changed to Give and Take. I have been working on a new cover, and I got five, but I can't pick. I'll wait until I finish. The ending has also been changed - but I'm not telling anyone about that. : ) I also changed my pen name ... for no apparent reason at all.
