What made me choose this book: The fuss! The book was very famous back when I was still blogging on tumblr. Also, forgive me bookworms for judging a book based on the rumored singer of its soundtrack. Since it was Taylor Swift who sang “Safe and Sound” and “Eyes Open” , I got more interested with the story since the song lyrics were very descriptive.
When I read it: It was just how I expected this novel to be — brilliant! The more I read it the more I want to watch the movie because scenes and settings were greatly described and I was curious how it would turn out on the movie. I watched the first two movies after reading the trilogy but I don’t have plans on watching the third one.
Why I was hooked: I was hooked because I had no idea what’s gonna be the next strategy of the enemy. And just when I thought I could predict the enemy’s tactic, I end up not knowing who the real enemy was!
My general opinion on this book: It was relatable, timely and relevant because it talked bout rebellion, politics, the spoiled rich people, the stupid forms of entertainment, and how the poor become poorer. With what the future could offer, The Hunger Games could be a sneak peak of what may happen on the years to come.
Also, I was betting on Gale and Katniss.
What other readers are saying: There have been great feedbacks but there were limits, ofcourse. Hunger Games Trilogy is so good but it could never surpass Harry Potter.
That would be all for this book. Thank you for reading and happy bookworming!
