Why I Love The Hunger Games

I recently just reread a The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  It has made me fall in love all over again.  Here are some of the main reasons why I love THG.

1) Katniss – such a great female heroine, is a very realistic character who is determined, passionate, strong…but has weaknesses like everyone else

2) Peeta – so sweet, protective, and sensitive; who doesn’t want their own Peeta?

3) Action – it is very fast paced and exciting.  It isn’t too dragged out and is easy to follow along

4) Excitement of the Games – as harsh as it is, it’s super intense and intriguing to read about

5) Short and sweet – Maybe the book is a decent length, but nothing is dragged out.  Suzanne Collins gets to the point

6) Touching moments – Katniss singing to Rue; Peeta taking on Cato for Katniss; even Haymitch’s mentoring all make the book hit your soft spot and make you feel touched and inspired
