Read the task above and the entry. Did the writer enjoy the book? Did he / she have any reservations?
Have you ever read a book that you just couldn't put down? The Hunger Games was like that for me. It's that good! Written by Suzanne Collins in 2006, it's sold millions of copies around the world and has been made into a film.
It's set in the future in a place called Panem and it tells the story of Katniss, a sixteen-year-old girl who competes in the Hunger Games with eleven other children. Only one child can survive the games, and Katniss is not optimistic about her chances. There are lots of twists and turns along the way.
What I love about the book is the character of Katniss. She's really strong and sensitive. She is practical-minded and loves freedom. She is also quick at getting the information and memorising things. I really identify with her. The story is very gripping. It is hard to put the book down once you start reading it.
All in all, this book is a real page-turner. I absolutely love it and I'd definitely recommend it. So if you haven't read it yet, buy it or borrow it. You won't be disappointed.
