I am on a roll with reading lately and it feels good. In 2 weeks I have blown through 2 books. Maybe that explains my lack of blogging??
With all the hype of the movie release of The Hunger Games I decided to pick it up and get reading. It had been sitting on my book shelf for close to a year.
1) Was it a good book? Yes. Although, I did think it was highly predictable. It could be because it is EVERY WHERE right now.
2) Would you recommend it? Yes. When books are so big in pop culture I always think you should read them.
3) What did you like about it? Katniss. I loved her strength for such a young girl. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I hear she is played very well.
4) What did you dislike about it? It was predictable and some times I thought it was cheesy. I am not an expert writer but the writing bothered me. Many times I had to go back and re-read sentences.
I hear the movie is really good and even people who didn’t read the book like it. I also hear guys like it. I am hoping to go see it in the next week or so.
Overall I would give it 3.5 out of 5 stars, based on the fact that I went in with such high expectations. It let me down a little.
Have you seen the movie yet? Do you buy into all the movie/book hype?
