The Hunger GamesIster's place in the Games But Katniss has been close to dead before and survival for her is second nature Without really meaning to she becomes a contender But if she is to win she will have to start making choices that weight survival against humanity and life against lo Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children In a YA book Two reasons why this book rocks a It is not Twilight and b I really hate reality shows Seriously how long would it take for reality shows to evolve from Survivor to Hunger Games? Yes this book is full of imperfections It often reuires a strenuous suspension of disbelief It can cause a painful amount of eye rolling and shaking fist at the book pages Its style is choppy and the first person present tense gets annoying The story is simple and the message is heavy handed But is does set a better example for young impressionable pre teens than gushing stories about sparkly co dependency And here is an obligatory taken out of contest Twilight bashing uote “But just the fact that he was sparkling leads me to doubt everything that happened” So why did I add it to my to read list for my future hypothetical daughter? Because Katniss is cool and a badass She is fierce independent resourceful intelligent and skilled She is loyal to her friends and family She is a survivor She will never allow a guy to carry her around as though she is a delicate flower She skewers that apple in the pig's mouth with an arrow in front of the Gamemakers in the most awesome way imaginable For all that I love this imperfect surly prickly sullen and perpetually pissed off uick to jump to judgment and sometimes clueless girl And I love this book because despite The Hunger Games being YA literature that seems to hinge on the romantic puppy love the happiness of Katniss does not revolve solely around a cute male lead Yes there is a hated love triangle here eyeroll but there are other issues that occupy Katniss' mind such as the survival of her friends family and herself rather than just pining over a cute boy Unlike other so called books where a boyfriend of a few months dumping you is a valid reason for catatonia and almost suicide And yet we still get readers who divide themselves into the incredibly annoying Team Peeta and Team Gale Because clearly nothing else ever matters besides sappy love in a book about children murdering each other eyeroll Now here is what bugged me about the romance that DID make it into the book There is actually a LOST OPPORTUNITY here to have a YA book where people CAN be just friends where devotion and loyalty stem from friendship and respect and not from attraction Katniss and Peeta could have had plenty of other reasons to care for each other that don't include puppy love they are from the same district same school he gave her that bread she trades with his dad etc But alas that did not happen I understand that Collins had to cater to the way that YA publishers and Hollywood tend to view us the female audience At least Katniss escapes the perils of insta love But poor Peeta all of his actions are colored by him being Lover Boy and I think it detracts from his personality and reduces him from a kind compassionate person to a fool in love who'd do anything for Katniss only because of his physical attraction to her YeahRueOh Rue Now back to the GOOD Rue my favorite character Little fragile almost too perfect Rue who was clearly doomed from the start Who despite her appearance was neither weak nor helpless Whose view spoilerdeath scene hide spoiler
