Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.

With a coupon and a deal on all three e-books of the Hunger Games my Kobo was set to embark on a reading  marathon.  In less than one month I finished all the books just before the movie was released in Victoria area theatres.  I'm finding young adult novels are well written and offer up some great characters, thought provoking plots and interesting science fiction.  Katniss Everdeen is not comparable to Bella of Twilight and if I had a daughter making a choice of reading material, I'd like her to choose the Hunger Games based on Katniss's ultimate decisions.  For Katniss her family bonds were close, she cared for her home village and she had some decisions to make about her life.  Those decisions were not presented in an easy manner and this is what made me like the book so much.  I even enjoyed all three books, although there have been comments about just cleaning up loose ends, I didn't find that distracting from the overall enjoyment of each book.  I'm also glad I had all three to read as one larger book and maybe that made the story flow better than those who read each book separately.

Enjoyed the movie too.  Was glad to see the book was followed with minor changes that didn't change the basis of the story.
