'The Hunger Games Trilogy' by Suzanne Collins

I know I'm possibly the last book blogger on earth to read Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games Trilogy, so I'm not going to go on about them because, frankly, what's the point? There must be thousands of beautifully written reviews of these three books out there and I don't feel a great need to add to them, so let me just say I LOVED these books. 

I ate up all three in three days and haven't stopped thinking about them since. And Katniss! What a character. What a feminist icon, although I imagine she's sick of meaning so much to so many, so I'll say that once and move on. Full, fleshed-out, flawed characters in a beautifully conceived world that presents both a horrifying reality and an almost impossible range of obstacles, which a fabulously diverse and powerful group of people manage to overcome, albeit it at devastating cost to themselves. I take a thousand hats off to Suzanne Collins, and a thousand hats off to the keener-than-me readers who made this such a great word-of-mouth hit.

And the second film trailer is out...

  2. Omgomgomgomg. I was going to leave a nice calm comment, but that's the first time I've seen the Catching Fire trailer and I am just waaaay too excited now. :P

    *calms down*

    Anywho, hi there! I'm Lucy Crowe. I think I added you and commented awhile back, but then I was super busy and didn't get around to my blogger people for awhile. So I wanted to pop on and catch up.

    I read The Hunger Games awhile ago and loved it, but I never got around to reading the other books for some reason. I definitely need to read the next one before the movie comes out though. I think the story line is complicated enough that the movie alone didn't do it justice. But if you've read the books, the movie is a nice complementary angle to the whole storyline, if that makes sense. So I definitely want to read Catching Fire so I can see the "big picture" in the movie, in case they don't include all the details.

    Anywho, that's enough rambling for me today. :P Since you enjoy reading, feel free to check out my blog. I have some short stories up on my website as well. Pretty much trying to get "out there" so to speak, before my first novel is published.

    Either way, I enjoyed your post! Have a good one. :)
