Summary: North America is no more. Now lies a place called Panem, a shiny Capitol surrounded by twelve districts.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
Opinions: Believe it or not, I've already reviewed this, hence the "revisited." If you would like to read my old review I will link it right HERE. I am reviewing this book again because I feel like my thoughts and opinions have changed since I last read it and I'm not a fan of the old review where all I did was talk about Katniss' name.
I'll be doing more of these "revisiting" things with books that have been turned into movies and just books that I really really love. Plus, it's nice to revisit old favorites.
Obviously, I do love this book. I think Katniss is an amazing main character and really nice, you know, role model. I really like the story line and the actual writing. Suzanne Collins is really good at descriptions and making the sentences flow. I don't think there were any slow parts. At least none that are memorable. It's a good book to read on planes or on car rides or if you just feel like having a new obsession. I guarantee you will be obsessed with the trilogy once you've finished.
This is also one of the only books my older brother has actually finished. He's not a reader at all; he doesn't have the patience. So obviously, it's good if my brother took time to read it. I've actually known a couple of non-readers to be big fans of this trilogy because it is just that amazing.
I've seen the movie a couple times. They did a really nice job, I think. Some people say they did a terrible job, but I just think they're idiots. The movie is really good. I highly recommend buying the movie. But read the book first. Always read the book first.
Alright, I think I'm going to go now. If you haven't noticed already, there is a donate button on the right sidebar. I need your help to continue my book-loving ways. I don't care if you donate a penny, it will mean the world to me. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous week and stuff. Okay, byeeee.
