The Hunger Games so far…

26 01 2012

isn’t all that great.  Kind of disappointed, actually.  The first chapter, although I know it’s told from the point of view of a 16 year old, was quite mediocre– the writing was– but I suppose Collins is one of those authors who is known better for her storytelling than for her writing, much like Dan Brown.  I much prefer a young adult novel like The Dead Kid Detective Agency by Evan Munday.  Also, Evan is way cooler and his sense of humour is awesome.

Also, the endorsement by Stephanie Myer on the front of the book really didn’t raise my expectations.
