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.
