The Hunger Games  - Suzanne  Collins This review can also be found at Joana In The Sky With Books

First of all, I am so glad I finally got around to reading this book. I have heard so much about it and I loved the movie so much that if I hadn't won it in a giveaway I would have borrowed it from my flatmate as soon as possible!
I think that this is one of the cases where I am glad I watched the movie first because, strangely enough (since I read so much) I am terrible at visualizing so it was easier for me to imagine the whole thing in my head.

Moving on, I don't think there was one thing about this book that I didn't like. I think Suzanne Collins created a fascinating and actually believable future.
I also loved how different all the characters were. They all had different pasts, different personalitys and none of them was a cliché which can happen sometimes in YA novels.
Katniss and Peeta, as main characters, are very likeable and believable because they are not perfect. They both have flaws, which makes them human. As for the side characters, I think they are all beautifully written and are important to the story.

I know that people in general are getting tired of love triangles, but I think the one we have in The Hunger Games is very well made, it fits the plot and it gives the book a nice touch.

All in all, I would recommend this book to well...everyone! I am really excited about reading the next books in the series!
