The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

'A bow pulled, an arrow shot.'

Stephen King, Rick Riordan and Stephenie Meyer. Ring a bell? They're authors. The Bestselling authors. What they've got to do with The Hunger Games? Well, they've read it and they give good reviews on this book. And that's what I'm gonna do.

It's a story about a reality TV show called The Hunger Games in which 12 boys and 12 girls must represent each of their district. There is one rule for this game: Kill or Be Killed. It's a very, very rough and violent game.

Katniss Everdeen, the protagonist in this story, volunteer after her sister's name was called. She sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.

She's the main target for all the players in the game as she scored the highest during the training score. Everyone wants her dead first and they make allies with each other. Will she run or let them find her and be killed for the game is already killing her slowly?

I've known about The Hunger Games when I visit Stephenie Meyer's official website last year. It doesn't interest me at first because the cover looks like it's a children's book. I didn't google it so I don't know what this book is all about.

Then, I saw this book at Popular bookstore in KK and it has 2 different front cover. One is a picture of a girl and the other is a boy and I chose the boy version because it's blue. I love blue :D So I bought it for RM42.90. I didn't read it at first because I've read other book that time. But once I read it, I found it...Boring. You know, few couple of pages. And I stopped reading it for few weeks and read a malay novel.

I know, right? BUT...Yes, there's a BUT, when I came to Part 2 of this book, I can't pull myself away from this book. It just get interesting, even the game begins with all the brutal killings and so and so. And some romance... It's a very, very good book that I recommend everyone to read it. In conclusion, it has a bad start but it gets better along the way. I give it...
