I'm just getting into it. So far it's making me hungry.

I'm being completely serious. How could you read about Katniss being hungry and worrying about starving and not feel the urge for a sandwich?


message 6: by Trudi (new)

Trudi So true! There is a powerful theme of food -- both gluttony and deprivation -- that runs through this book. When thinking about an Apocalyptic landscape, zombies or roving gangs of cannibals wouldn't upset me nearly as much as going hungry :)


message 7: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie "both gluttony and deprivation."

Sounds like the good old USA.

Mmm, good taco, now where's Kemper with that review?


message 9: by Kemper (new)

Kemper Simmer down, people. I'm on like page 52. It's gonna be a minute.

Ronyell Ooh! I can't wait to here what you think about this book!

That's 'sammich' to you, Mister Officer. I see the acting lessons haven't stuck, therefore, I sentence you to watching Smokey and the Bandit I, II and III until you refer to all food between slices of bread in the appropriate fashion.

Trudi Very nice :)


message 13: by Ronyell (new)

Ronyell Awesome review Kemper!! I really enjoyed this book and I'm glad you enjoyed it too! I've often felt like I was the last person at the party too when it comes to reading books that are the rave.


Erin (Paperbackstash) *Proud Book Hoarder* Good review. I wasn't aware they The Long Walk by King (Under Bachman) was a little similar. I recently picked up The Long Walk and because of this am even more curious to read it.

Thanks. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who runs late.

I'm definately going to reread it in the near future.

I broke character and read/reviewed this as myself because I figured that Sheriff Justice wouldn't be interested in no story about hungry girls runnin' round the woods. Hence, the sammich lapse. All apologies.

Stephanie "All apologies."

But you lapsed into Kurt Cobain.

Bad idea.

Kemper I'm just gonna hide in my heart shaped box...


message 22: by Trudi (new)

Trudi Groan. Let me guess ... while drinking a cup of pennyroyal tea? LOL. I absolutely ADORE The Long Walk and have probably read it a half dozen times, and I bet if I see you re-reading it I won't be able to stop myself from picking it up yet again :)


message 23: by Tracy (new)

Tracy Great review. I am now both hungry and I want to read The Long WalkThe Long Walk.

The Long Walk is tremendous and vastly underrated. It's something I've wanted to re-read for a while now.

Great review, Kemper!

You can eat a sammich while reading the The Long Walk and satisfy both urges.

I always thought Long Walk was one of King's more underrated books too, maybe because it was originally one of his Bachman ones that flew under the radar. I'm anxious to reread now and see if my memory of it is accurate.


message 27: by Iam (new)

Iam Fine enjoyed this book for many of the same reasons you gave---but I'm not interested enough to finish the series---Peeta was getting on my last nerve! Will you finish the series?


message 28: by Stepheny (new)

Stepheny Great review, Kemper! I thought it was very reminiscent of both The Long Walk and The Running Man! It was almost a mash-up of the two! :) Loved your review though! Spot on!


message 29: by Ása (new)

Ása Margrét Good review loved this quote "I’m tremendously glad about that because I obviously prefer her using the tough and independent Katniss as a role model rather than Bella Swan. I’d rather see her running through the woods hunting humans with a bow-n-arrow rather than pining over pale losers."

Hope more young girls do the same :)
