Hello! Today, Tani read a new book! Because I am so behind on the times, I am calling it new, but in reality, “The Hunger Games” is relatively old. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting more of the modern tripe that passes as young adult fiction these days. Yes, it was tripe-y at times, occasionally even painful (nothing is more painful to this romantic reader than false and unrequited love. Ugh) but all in all, it was well written, interesting story-line. A few caveats (such as… if they can figure out how to make food magically appear, why don’t they have guns??? And why is the protagonist so distasteful at times????) but all-in-all, a good story.
Three stars out of five for “The Hunger Games.”
Love to all!
