My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Running Man with a Teenage Girl Part 2
That’s an easy comparison to draw, but the truth is that The Hunger Games Trilogy is (at least in my eyes) living up to the hype as it’s own entity. It’s well thought out, solidly written and the characters are very engaging.
Regarding the characters: I like Peeta… which means (in the end) he will probably get the shaft. I’m reading the third book now and I can already see it coming: nice guy, hopelessly in love, does everything to protect/save the girl. That can mean only one thing in the end. (Just ask any of those “Team Jacob” girls.)
Girly melodrama aside, the science fiction aspect of this book is great. It’s entertaining post-apocalyptic action and I hope the movie(s?) live up to the storytelling.
Now please excuse me, but I have a third book to finish. 🙂
