I loved this saga that I read two or three years ago. For Christmas, I received the English version, but I hadn't time to read it. That's why I took it for my holliday ! It's a big crush ! I fell in love of the original version ! It's more emoving and I don't know, fellings are stronger ! I'm not kind of person who cry behind a book, but this time, I not far to sob...
Like for French book, I was riveted by the story and the different events... There was a huge suspens ! Impossible to lay the book. Fortunately, I was alone, and I could decide when eat or sleep ! I think, maybe because I discover word by word the story and not understand all, I felt more concern by adventures. They touched me more than in French... But maybe it's just because I didn't remember well story...
I love Katniss and Peeta. They are absolutely wonderful ! Katniss is all I love : determided, loving, brave... But she is also rebellous and she search the better in herself ! I admired her, I dream to be like her... Less the games, of course ! Peeta is sympathic, more than in French... I didn't really like Gale, he seems more agressive... However, it's perhaps because I know the saga's end !
End is beautiful... It was not too quickly and there was a lot of suspens. Even if, I know the story, I would like to read -a new time- what happened ! Of course, I ask for my birthday the second book, so I think I will have it, and can read it... I hope, it will be as wonderful as this first book... We will see !
A little precision, I don't put 20 for mark, because, I think it's impossible to a book to be perfect. That's why I put « only » 19,99...
A big Crush ! Better than French version !

The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of twelve district must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes, to participate. The twenty-four tributes will be imprisoned in a vast outdoor arena that could hold anything from burning desert to a frozen wasteland. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. The last tribute standing wins.
