The Hunger Games completely outshines almost every single novel that i have claimed to love. Each and every page is filled with some sort of shock, some sort of revelation that will stun you to silence. Every word is powerful, and holds so much meaning that you will be crying at the simplest of sentances. This novel is truly as close to perfect as its going to get. It is so suspensfull--i guarentee your palms will be sweating by the time you reach page 10. The story kept me up for several nights in a row, because even after I made myself stop and shut it, I just lay in bed wide awake thinking about it for hours at a time.
Katniss herself is captivating, and her sturdy personality never disappoints. Peeta is absolutely amazing, and, if i say so myself, he would make a fabulous boyfriend to any lady out there in Fiction Land. The other tributes all have their own distinguishing characteristics and quirks that made each and every one of them stand out among the crowd.
Suzanne's writing itself was just mind-boggling to me. Her voice is constantly clear and unique, able to be discussing a first kiss in deadly circumstances to an attack by mutant dogs and still maintain an amazing way of displaying emotions and describing the scene at once.
This novel is an unforgettable whirlwind of action, adventure, family, and romance. like very few others, this novel willl stun you into silence too many times to count, and bring tears to your eyes at the fierce displays of emotion.
Completely shocking and thrilling, this novel will amaze you in ways you have not been amazed, touch your heart in places that have yet to be touched. The Hunger Games is one that will never be forgotten, even months after you have shut its cover.

The beginning hook sets the scene for the entire novel: Mystery and suspense with a touch of romance--no pun intended. Ben's character intrigued me, an i couldnt help but wonder what it was that was keeping him separated from the crowd, and if the rumors were true. Ben himself has an air of mystery surrounding him, which only adds to the suspense that builds throughout this amazing novel, the first in the TOUCH series by Laurie Stolarz, the famed author of Blue is for Nightmares.

Every time one of your questions is answered, about three or four more will arise.
Each thought of Camelia's and her mysterious stalker's will make you look in another direction, point your finger at another one of Cam's peers.

Why?
