RatingI gave The Hunger Games a rating of 1 2 3 4 5 5 out of 5 stars The book was great and had great description. I always knew what was happening. The only minor detail I didn’t like was it was to easy to know what was happening next. I don’t really care about that so the book was great and I can’t wait to read the next book!
