Ok so this is an opinion/review of the ever so beliebt growing series of the hunger games. So I'll start with a little review and then will Liebe to hear other people's opinions as well as mine.

Intro:
As Du know may know my Zurück review was on the Percy Jackson series. I loved that series and if you're into Fantasy that's a must read. This book was targeted at an older audience and I personally liked this book more. Not to say Percy Jackson wasn't for an older audience, I just think this will suit teens better than Percy did. If you're wondering whether oder not Du should read the series then what are Du waiting for, I know I have never found a book Mehr suspenseful oder hooking as these books.Without farther interruption lets start.

Story:(if Du already know don't read)

If Du don't know the story already it's about a sixteen Jahr old girl named Katniss, who lives in a place called Panem. She is part of district twelve of a total of what used to be 13. A place called the capitol is in control of pretty much everything and treat the districts almost like slaves. As a reminder to the districts of who has the real power the capitol holds the annual hunger games, in which two member from each district are sent to kill each other to the death. Really the story is A LOT better than I make it sound. I'm pretty terrible at summarizing but just look it up if Du want more.

Romance?:

Well obviously every good book has got to have its romance and the hunger games is sure not to skip out that portion. Although the Bücher focus on suspense mystery, unknown, trickery and oh so much Mehr it is hugely based on romance as well. Normally I don't like having too many Liebe scenes but I say this series has the perfect amount. Du definitely get attached to the characters and Katniss will eventually have to choose between Gale and Peeta. Now obviously Du get attached to the main character but I feel Du get just as attached to Peeta even though it's through Katniss's eye's. Katniss has to figure out who she likes Mehr but honestly to the reader Du like Peeta more. The book does not focus much on Gale and so Du don't get attached but seeing where they left off with the Sekunde book I think we'll be seeing a lot Mehr of him and a lot less of Peeta. That all sagte Du can literally come close to crying in some of the romance scene's as they can get REALLY... REEEAAALLY emotional, and that's one of the thing's that makes this so great. The story and plot and everything else is great, just as good as harry potter oder Percy Jackson, but the thing that makes this greater than both of those is the mind blowing high level of emotion. I can't put it into words Du just have to read the Bücher to know what I mean.

Downside?:

Well Du know I can nitpick anything just as many of Du probably can, and like anything there are flaws if Du look but mostly just opinion flaws. If Du read my harry potter review Du may know the problems I had with the last book. Mainly just the part when Harry dies and talks with dumbledore but that's another story. Now the third hasn't been released yet and so I can't make a full assessment. The only really IMPORTANT (keyword) flaw that I have is that the Bücher are too short. Now, now, they are a reasonable amount and shouldn't be too much longer, I would say about 100 pages more. I don't know what to write in those pages but I finished the Bücher way too fast. I know they aren't really that short but Hey when Du have a really good series I like to last as long as possible. Either it's all good and I'm happy for a while oder I get bored and it runs too long but I prefer that over too short. I know people hate it when things go on to long but look at harry potter, I think the hunger games could have been the Weiter huge series and could easily get the popularity for AT LEAST five books. Anyway other than that I have no BIG problems so far and Liebe the series.

Release times??????????:

All the release dates have been right before school, What's up with that? I guess it gives me something to look vorwärts-, nach vorn to at the end of the summer but it still is painful. Rick Riordan was smart to release his Bücher right before the summer. The Mokingjay comes out August 24 and I can't wait.

Movie:

I disagree with Bücher into movies. I know a lot of people Liebe seeing their Favorit Bücher on screen but that problem I have is when they take REALLY GOOD Bücher and turn them into movies. I mean sure I'd Liebe to see a movie of my Favorit Bücher but there are two problems. First of all they almost never do a good job, Look at harry potter I mean sure the first two were great, the third and fourth lacking thins, and Von the fifth and sixth the series died. I could rant on and on about hacke bad the fifth and sixth Filme were b8ut that's not what I'm talking mainly about right now. Anyway, Sekunde I Liebe Bücher because of the imagination and predicting what happens, Filme take that all away and I don't like that. Plus the character descriptions are usually way off, not that that matters too much but it takes away the imaginative image. Please Kommentar on what Du think of the movie and if it should be done and if Du think good Bücher should be movies. Just one Mehr thing, Filme can COMPLETELY ruin books. I saw the Earagon movie BEFORE I read the book and the book just didn't seem as good because the imagination was gone. I am SOOOOOO glad I read the lightening thief in class before the movie. My friend saw the movie and didn't read the Bücher and now that whole series is ruined for him.

Game?:

If there's a tie in video game I hope it's good, it could be a really awesome rpg although I disagree with movie tie-in games I prefer book video games over book Filme (Normally anyway of course this varies but in this case I think it would apply). I'm not saying I WANT a video game but for gamers who don't read I think it would be a nice rpg if done right.

Cliffhangers galore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

Like any good book these Bücher have loads of cliff hangers almost at every chapter. I didn't stop once at a chapter it was always in the middle when I found the very least exciting part and even that was hard. I warn Du to set aside hours before reading. Also the end of the Bücher themselves don't really end. They leave Du hanging. Imagine Harry getting about to confront voldemort and then ending right before, and then waiting a Jahr to finally know what happens. Well that WILL pretty much happen with these Bücher so if Du haven't read them I suggest waiting until august 20th oder so of 2010 to start that way the third will be out when Du need it oder close to anyway. These Bücher have Von far the best cliffhangers I've ever seen and I'm thankful I started the first as the Sekunde came out but I'd be Mehr thankful if I had waited until the third, oder maybe not. I do sort of like being forced to take a break it makes it seem longer. I don't know I seem kind of teilt, split on that decision.

opinions and thoughts:

Well the series is awesome and if Du would like to chat about it with someone I'd be Mehr than happy to My msn is Drive41@hotmail.com E-Mail me first though. Anyway I think teens and adults will Liebe these Bücher as most already do but as for kids... well if it's a mature kid because Du need a good thought process and a high enough maturity level but I'm sure kids would enjoy them too, just not for the same reasons. The third comes out this summer and my Friends and I can hardly wait. So let me know what Du think and please share comments. All I can say is I hope the third is longer than the first two, in fact I'd be happy if it were as long as harry potter 5, so I hope that happens even though I doubt it will. Let me know what's up and please share information.
