Re-Read Review – The Hunger Games

With the Catching Fire movie being released this week I wanted to re-read the series to get the story back into my head. I read this one quite a while ago and I didn’t really remember much about how it was written so I was pleased to find that it was better than I remembered. The pace of the story is very quick and it is very easy to sit down and read the whole thing in a few hours. I was most surprised by how much Katniss at the start of the book insisted her relationship with Gale was in no way romantic as the love triangle is often talked about but I didn’t find this a bad thing. What I also found interesting was how I processed the behaviors of the two boys. From a relationship point of view they offer two very different types of romance. Gale is the best friend kind, who likes the same things as you and you would be his equal. Peeta on the other hand is the more traditional romantic. He puts Katniss first and it is all about her protection and happiness. I think I definitely enjoyed reading this more second time around. I picked up more on how strong Katniss is as a heroine and the survival story felt more important than the romance. Can’t wait to start Catching Fire now, it was my favourite last time!

  1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the re-read! When I first re-read The Hunger Games, I was surprised with how much I was still captivated with all of the action even though I already knew what happened. I had forgotten a lot of the details! I was also interested to rediscover how those relationships developed. It was definitely interesting to read it for myself again! 🙂
