The Hunger Games, by Suzzane Collins

I loved the whole book! It just pulled me in, I couldn’t put it down! I was reading it every chance I got, and when I finished it, I was disappointed. Usually I don’t feel this way after I finish a book, but this book was the best Sci-fi book I ever read! What’s not to love about the book!?!?

My favourite character was – you guessed it, Katniss Everdeen. Skilled with a bow and arrow, willing to take her sister’s place in a fight to the death to protect her sister, she is awesome! But shockingly I find myself having Haymitch himself as my second favorite character. In the beginning he seemed to just be a drunk guy who wouldn’t really be in the book that much. But later through the book, he was no longer that drunk guy in the beginning. When he warned Katniss that she was in danger at the end of the film, it showed that he can be a caring person. When he wants to.

My third favorite character in the book was Rue. Small, yet she can be dangerous. Her death was more memorable than the other tributes. Suzzane Collins put a lot of work to her death, because she was a great and trusting friend to Katniss. I too, was disappointed by Rue’s death. She will not be forgotten.

I thought Peeta’s strategy to make people think he’s in love with Katniss, so they both can win was a deeply thought up, and really cool plan. But is Peeta really in love with Katniss? And will Katniss and Peeta actually be a couple in the sequel? We’ll just have to read and see.

This book is possibly the best Science Fiction book I ever read so far. No matter what Sci-fi book I read, the Hunger Games will always be in the top 5. This book is a definite for all Sci-fi fans.

I, Robot by: Isaac Asimov

download-4I know I should of made this post a long time ago, but I was really busy. Okay, I, robot, by Isaac Asimov. Let’s start it with 3 comments:

Comments:

The extraordinary and grand concept which forms the basis of Asimov’s truthfulness what drew me to science fiction originally.

-Brian W. Aldiss

With the Robot stories and the foundation stories, [Asimov] helped to shape Science fiction as we know it.

-Jack Williamson

quite simply, Asimov got me started.

-Liz Williams

What it’s about:

they mustn’t harm a human being, they must obey human orders, and they must protect their own existence… but only if doing so doesn’t violate rules 1 and 2. With these 3 laws of robotics, humanity embarks on perhaps its greatest adventure: the invention of the first positioning man.

Isaac Asimov’s, I, Robot launches readers on an adventure into a not-so-far-distant future where man and machine struggle to redefine life, love, and consciousness itself. For the scientists who invented the earliest weren’t content that their creations should remain programmed helpers, companions, and semisentient worker-machines. And soon the robots themselves, aware of their own intelligence, power, and humanity, aren’t satisfied either. Now human men and women find themselves confronting telepathic robots, robot politicians, robots gone mad, and vast robotic intelligences that may already secretly control the world in the next great evolutionary struggle for survival. And now both man and robot are asking the same questions: What is human? And what is human obsolete?

What I think:

I first heard about the book in the first book in the series Frank Einstein. I thought it sounded like a really cool book, so I decided to get the book. Years later, I still didn’t get the book. I actually forgot about the book a little bit. Then last year, I finally got the book, after all these years, and I loved the book once I got it. My favorite characters were Greg powell and Mike Donavan. Thinking of the characters in the book with no pictures was hard. So I brought my tech life into my book life. I pictured Greg and Mike as Rhett and Link from good mythical morning, Susan calving as claire from Jurassic world, Berkeley and another character as Stan Lee etc. And for the robots, I just thought them as droids from star wars. This is one of the few science fiction books That I have ever read, and it’s probably the best one I ever read.
