Teen Book Reviews and Recommendations

This novella, as the title suggests, is a collection of book that I have read and reviewed. Since I read each book personally I have I better understanding of the book and can really review it as an author, reader, and a writer. If you have any suggestions of what you want me to read PLEASE comment, I am always looking for a good read.


1. The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)

This book- along with the others of the series- are well written, unquestionably. However, my focus lies with the plot and storyline of each book. The political distress that appears within Katniss' journey is a sort of allegory, relating to the issues that are alive in many modern governments; but not to the extent which is portrayed in The Hunger Games. Which I think makes the story more interesting, seeing the extreme in such a brutal way. The story shows a strong inspirational female lead, who, despite the troubles she is faced, discovers her own meaning of love and community. The scenes in the book can become quite graphic since the whole book is centered around planned massacre of 23 teenagers. The concept of the book is very unique, which compels the reader to read on, until the last page. 

Suzanne Collins portrays a lively and colorful Capital making the idea of the center of the government more interesting, since it controls a graphic display of murder. Collins also created memorable moments in the plot which have become key interest points for the fan following; Tributes. Such as the three-finger solute and the mahogany table. I, personally, really enjoy books that have a sense of danger that enhances my normal every day life, like some sort of transporter. What really helps "transport" you is the use of description, relating the surroundings to Katniss. By doing this the reader can thoroughly analyze the relationships and feelings about the setting and characters from Katniss' point of view.

Overal, The Hunger Game is an exciting tale of a a strong girl fighting for Panem and her family, and finds love along the way. Do not be fooled by this seemingly innocent theme. The Hunger Games will put you into a new world of danger, murder, and dystopian future.
