SPOILER ALERT! Do not read if you want to read “The Hunger Games”
This week’s homework was to write a down some thoughts about the book I’m reading, the first impressions if you will. The book I’m reading is the famous “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. Today I’ve read the first two chapters, I’ve been introduced to the main persons. Katniss & her sister Primrose Everdeen (“Prim”), Katniss’ best friend Gale, and Peeta Mellark. Peeta & Katniss are going to the Hunger Games together.
I really think this will be a good read, I’ve seen the movie trailer, but not the movie itself. This is the first time I’m reading the book before the film. That will be interesting indeed. Anyway, I’m happy that I chose this book (I had a few to choose from). I’ve had a very good first impression, the grammar is good, the difficulty is moderate (no problem with the iPad’s “Define” option). Even though it has a slow start it’s fun to read, you need to get the whole picture before the action starts. They live on earth, but sometimes it seems that they live in a completely different world (in a way they do). The region Katniss live in is called “District 12″, as far as I know there’s no region on earth called that. You also appreciate what you have when you read Katniss’ story, I will not spoil it for you; Buy the book!
Bottom line; Great first impression! I’m looking forward to reading the whole book!
And as always, thanks for reading!
