THE HUNGER GAMES is the best book I have read in a long time. People who are hesitant to read this- (like I was) do not fear. THE HUNGER GAMES will make many people with various tastes satisfied. Suzanne Collins has truly struck gold on this series.

Loved this book

by BookFan16 (WorldCat user published 2016-05-29) Excellent Permalink

 Loved this book! It was entertaining and a little scary to think of how much control some have. The characters and scenes are all well written, I highly recommend this book!
