Well….what’d y’all think?
I really enjoyed this book. Initially I didn’t think I would – I’m quick to toss a book aside if it doesn’t catch my attention in the first few pages – but I hung in there and wound up devouring it rather quickly.
So I could totally see the events in this book occurring. And I think that’s why I enjoyed the book as much as I did. I’ve realized that as long as something seems remotely possible to me, I can handle it. Star Trek, Vulcans and all that jazz – not my style. But this type of futuristic fiction is cool with me.
I’m looking forward to finishing the trilogy. Which I didn’t know was written for young adults until someone’s husband (ahem, Jameil!) clowned me about our selection on the Twitter.
Anyhoo, I’ve actually got to work today (I worked last week – this is getting ridiculous!) so I’m just going to drop in throughout the day and contribute to the conversation I hope y’all will start in 3…2…1…
Here are some prompts to get the discussion started. Answer these or feel free to just tell us what you thought! I’ll be back
- How quickly did you read The Hunger Games?
- Did your perception of Peeta change over the course of The Hunger Games?
- Do you think the glamorization of the Games and the treatments of its stars before they are sent off to die is a reflection of anything in our modern society?
- Do you think Katniss will be able to choose and keep love or will she have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
