The Hunger Games
My eyes are practically bleeding right now that I don't even know how or what I'm writing, I'm sooooo tired but I couldn't stop reading, I devoured the book. For so long I avoided reading this saga and, at the end, I'm glad I succumbed to the media and read it.
The writing is so simple and concrete but so well done that it doesn't matter if you're 15 or 25 years old, you'll be hooked from the beginning and, like me, you won't be able to drop the book and go to bed (even if you tried).
It's impossible not to care for those young protagonists, reading all the work Katniss had to do to keep her, her little sister and her mother alive, being so young. Since the first pages you can see the incomparable love that Katniss feels for Prim, her sister. A love so strong and so big that she volunteers as a tribute when Prim's name is chosen.
Then, you also have the young and good Peeta, who has noone to volunteer for him and in top of that he is going to the games with the love of his life. Because it's obvious from the start that he deeply cares for Katniss even When she doesn't feel the same.
How can you not love those two and feel impotent and angry while you read about all the have to go through while people in The Capitol of Panem see all of it as a simple entertainment.
You read and smile with their sarcasm but you can't help to shed a tear, or a thousand, too.
The book is so complete that you pass for all the emotional stages while reading. If this is the first one I can't wait to start the second one, but now, I need to sleep.
