I know I did a review of The Hunger Games before, but I need to do it again because I found out some more information about this series through the research I have been doing the past few weeks.
I knew the series was bad, but I did not know how bad it really was until last night. But let me back up to the very beginning when I heard of this series first.
When I first saw people posting on their blogs about this series, etc. etc. I thought, "Mainstream media. No way am I allowed to read this series." But then one of my friends posted about the series on her blog and said she loved it. Then I thought, "She must know what books are bad and which aren't. Hey, this may one of the first mainstream book series that might actually be appropriate!"
So I decided to research into these books. But what I found out made me go back to my first opinion - "No way am I reading this." My dad agreed. And that was that.
Then there was a whole debate about these books in the Student Lounge in my online school - me against everyone else with my little knowledge. And the people, who loved these books admitted to me that the main character Katniss and this guy (I think his name is Peeta) slept together in the same sleeping bag. I was shocked. This is not pure at all, and gives people a bad example!
But then my mom found this review last night. My mom and I were horrified when we read it (I encourage and ask you to read this review), and we think that this series sounds even worse than Twilight and Harry Potter.
So even though I agree that Taylor Swift's two songs for The Hunger Games movies are very good (I have literally been playing and re-playing the preview for "Eyes Open" all day), I ask you - no, beg, implore, AND plead you - if you have planned on reading and/or watching this series (the movie is coming out very soon), DO NOT!!! This series is straight from Hell and is evil garbage. Protect your soul by staying away from it, and protect others by spreading the word! I already have three friends, who heard about this series and were shocked when they heard about it.
