MockingjayFinally I am happy that I read ”Hunger Game” trilogy. It’s not as bad as it was mentioned in most of the reviews. I agree that it didn’t have a proper  fairy tale happy ending but I feel after what happened to them, they cant expect a fairy tale ending, that too after  terrible war.

This book is all about politics and war. Exactly how real life politics works, how the innocent people are used to fulfill others ambition. I think no war can bring happiness, even the victory after that will seem worthless when so many lives are taken.

Coming to the story- book starts with district 13 and its life. How Katniss has to act as Mockingjay to encourage people to fight. Peeta is in Capitol with other victors who comes later but not as old Peeta he used to be. Katniss has to play her part live or dead. She is just been used as a model to get people fighting the Capitol. But Katniss has her own plans. To read about this in detail, you should read this 3rd book in ”Hunger Games” series.

I am not disappointed but I expected more, but got very little from this book.  Finally I am happy because I know whom Katniss chose as her life partner. So I am going to celebrate and treat myself with mixed fruit juice 🙂

The Second book of the Hunger games. After reading  the first book and watching the movie I couldn’t wait to read this book. I was planing to read this book by next month, because there are many books in the ”Yet to read list”. But I was getting restless without knowing whats next in Hunger games.

If you thought the Capitol couldn’t get any more twisted then you were wrong. Capitol has its own way to make people do what they want and for an extent they succeed in that. I finished reading this in 2 days! I thought first book was fantastic, so its sequel will not be that good. But oh boy! how can it be? I was wrong! Its amazing too.

But there is no dynamic fights as in first book. Catching fire is a good title to indicate that ”The girl on fire” is really on fire and she is catching fire 🙂  Yes exactly thats what happens in this book. Katniss’s world is on fire now! At the end I felt little lost, but it was shocking too. I don’t know from where author gets this ideas, but they are just incredible.Peeta is adorable as usual and all characters are good in their own way. I don’t want to talk about the story and spoil the fun for people who didn’t read but planning to read it.

Just love it and waiting to read the third book as soon as possible.

Its late for a review! I know, all Hunger games fans are already given the review. And all reviews are positive about the movie. I watched it on 22nd March thats last week and liked it. If you read my previous reviews about novels and  movies based on novels, you will find that I always felt books are better than movies. When a novel is adapted as a movie, they will always end up spoiling it. But this one is quite opposite.

This post is not about review. I should say that I am little confused after watching this movie. When I read this book I thought Peeta and Katniss will make a good pair. As Peeta was supportive and liked Katniss and helped her to win,I liked his character. I didn’t understand why Katniss had problem to accept his love. He is so innocent and lovable.

Peeta and Katniss

But after watching  the movie I liked Gale’s character too. He liked Katniss, and took care of her family in her absence and he looks good too. So I don’t know who will be suitable pair for Katniss now. Peeta or Gale?

Whom do you think as a good pair? I know I am acting like a crazy fan but I am as confused as Katniss 🙂 Now I am reading  the second book ”Catching Fire”, may be I will get an idea after reading this.

I can’t believe i didn’t read this book till now!  But finally when I did it I couldn’t put it down. I finished reading entire book in 2 days. I have no words to explain the joy I felt while reading the book. I wish these books were around when I was young.

The book is about a girl, Katniss from district 12, who volunteers to be the contender in the Hunger Games in order to save her little sister. The games are horrible you can call it as  “punishment” set by The Capitol  and is a fight to the death by chosen children from each of the 12 districts. There can be only one survivor, which means either she dies, or she kills 23 other kids. Among these other contenders is Peeta, a boy who Katniss feels soft cornered and feels that she owes a little debt already. Its her fight throughout the book to win and rebel against The Capitol who dont value poor people’s life. In between she is confused about her feelings for Peeta whether its care or love?

I recommend everyone to get a chance to read it becuase its  an absolutely phenomenal novel. I can’t wait to read book two, and find out what happens next. And I cant wait to watch the movie which is going to release this month 23rd, hopefully its going to be as  good as the book.
