My Review: 2 stars

There are some parts of the book that reminded me of Hunter X Hunter (when Gon and the others are on the island thinking of an effective strategy how to take each other out,get the badge in order to move on the next round).Though the Hunger games is totally different the arena and gamemakers got all sorts of twist each one makes it more unique,believable almost possible in a way it's so engaging! The emotions,hierarchy,training,televised shows,hunting or be haunted,the food!,battle of survival,star crossed lover effect oh dear I love Peeta! he's a baker,funny,kind,generous almost all the traits you'll adore in a boy.After reading this book I totally understood what the fuss is all about,how thrilling,exciting,overwhelmingly awesome this would be on the big screen.There are also some points that I could somehow predict what's going to happen next like okay that's it but yeah every single time it somewhat throws me off.It's so real that I can't help but catch my breath,cheer on the characters,despise other disctrict's villainy plot in the end all is well hooray!well at least for now anyway...book two here I come!
