Book Review : Hunger Game Trilogy

Title: Hunger game Trilogy
Author: Suzanne Collins
Language: English
Format: eBook
How: bought it.

In overall, I give the serie a 41/2 stars. That's my on opinion, I understand the book by itself is different, I bought the trilogy because I heard how amazing it was so I though I would read it to know myself. The first book was something I usually read, so I really like it, the second one I didn't much but it still grab me because I wanted to know what happen next. The last book, god it took me two weeks to read it when the two previous books only took me up to 3 day max to read, no kidding. So in the overall series, It was new and interesting, everything I was reading I could see the world and characters like I was living it. But the pacing was slow at time, but relevant to see how the character is living in pain, to feel the pain, to see the reason why she think and did things they way she did.

Hunger Game: I give 5/5
I love the character, the gripping action. I like that it was well balance, after great action came down some calming scene for the previous action actually sink in my mind, the pacing was fast at point, but to make the action and the feeling of danger more real. The romance made me grab right away. Tough the fact on how she would act all romantic with Peeta but always deny her feeling. That was bugging me, but I understand that she was what 16, and only been thinking of survival for most of her life, thinking of love during the hardship wasn't something you can survive on especially if you had kids they could get killed off when they turned 12 so yeah.

But except that I like the first book.

Catching Fire: 3/5
Was interesting to see the hardship of going back in the game after they just got there. It was well mix with the rebel and the surviving, but didn't compare to the first one.  I like it anyway, it made me curious to know what was happening to them and what the hell the MockingJay sign mean. But I was getting sick of the denial feeling for Peeta when she keep screaming that she doesn't love him that way but will kill to keep him safe, decided girl, that all I can say.
was waay to long, It took 2/3 of the book before the action started again and it was just dragging and dragging it took me two weeks to read just that book, where I used one afternoon to read the first one. I understand that it was to show about the world history now instead of the life of Katniss but if it would have been like that should have been written in third person instead of listening to the moaning of the girl all day long. Just saying.


  1. I've heard great things about this trilogy, even from people who don't usually read YA or dystopian. I've been wanting to read it, but simply cannot afford to splurge. And though I'm on the wait list at the library, there are 1500 people ahead of me. *sigh* Maybe I'll just see the movie. Great review though. Gives me lots to think about, and I appreciate that.

  2. I didn't read the books but did see The Hunger Games movie like 2 weeks ago when it came out and I enjoyed it.
