The Hunger Games by Suzzane Collins
okay. it's time to forget cold blooded Cullen, or appealing Patch. proudly, present Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games.
my boyfriend bought it for me two days ago, and i've already glanced at it since a month ago. well, i considered which one should i buy first, between this book or Mitch Albom's Five Person You Meet in Heaven (regrettably, i should choose one), and i pick Mitch Albom's first. But, fortunately, my beloved bf understand how much i wish for this book, and he's going to get it soon! :)
well, i read it slowly. First chapter had caught me enough, it's snooping. They set in future time, they don't mention it clearly when, but in that occasion, they reveal a reality show called The Hunger Games. There are twelve districts at the time, and each must send two teenagers (12-18 years old), a male and a female, to compete at this game. they will be located in waterless field, and they must survive til everybody get killed, and only one person left behind. there's only one winner for a year, it's so clear, that they must kill, or get killed.
Dreadful, watching teenagers must guarantee such as big responsibility. they must keep their lives, while slaughtering everyone else, included their districts partner. it mentioned at the book, that the citizens love to see that show. horrible. i can't stop reading, on and on, til i found who exactly the winner.
it's fiction, and i can't imagine if it happens to our world. but, you'll be exhausted while reading it, and found like it's real. at least, it's turning out to me. so, read. develop your humanity by seeing, that human can do worse thing, even poorer than animal.
