The Hunger Games was an exceptional read for the teenage generation, filled with suspense and drama that kept me enticed and wanting to read more. The novel was very authentic, and had many themes—romance, violence, suspense, to name a few—which kept the reader immersed in the universe that Susanne Collins built for the audience. I loved the speed of this novel, especially when we got to “The Games”. The author did a good job providing just enough back story before the reader entered the arena where the tribunes were to fight for their death. However, there were a few things I didn’t like about the novel. There we too many conveniences for the main character, Katniss, throughout the games. In particular she happened to find the bees nest to drop on her competition, freeing her from her death and when she needed medicine, the sponsors dropped a parcel to heal Peeta. I found those things were too convenient and when instances occurred, just in the nick of time everything was solved. Overall, this book was a great read!
