The Hunger Games - Suzanne  Collins Although I am not particularly proud of it, I was extremely worried and hesitant about reading this book. I’m usually wary of books that are popular over a wide variety of people, not to mention the fact that it is written in present tense. And we all know how I feel about present tense writing! But I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the story! I’m glad that I finally gave in to the recommendations and pleading of several friends of mine! If you were as hesitant and worried as I was, trust me, you will not be disappointed! There is a reason behind all the hype! The characters are intriguing, the story is exciting, and the pace is perfect! This is a very well-rounded novel, and I am more than happy I jumped on this bandwagon!Read more?
