An Unsatisfying Review
"Amazon Book Review
The Hunger Games
I have read many books..a lot of different topics and plots. This Book after reading one chapter is going to join the dumpster.
I had to force myself to read one chapter and could not "get into" the book AT ALL
I would highly recommend you read some of this book before purchasing it. I did not like it at all and I can't say that about many books.
Firstly let me congratulate you on being an avid reader, that's commendable indeed. I'm sensing by the overall tone of your review that you did not like this book. Am I correct in this assumption? It must have been positively dreadful for you to be compelled to throw your hands up into the air and toss this apparent drivel into the trash (or as you so creatively put it, send this book to "join the dumpster.")
I'm not sure what they'll do together, but you never know what a book and a dumpster might contrive given a little quality time.
As Ms. Madge(rs) has yet to succumb to the Hunger Games fever that has swept the world and even impacted members of her own household, she can not speak to the quality of writing or content. As you read only a single chapter before giving up the ghost, it follows that you may not be qualified to speak to these things either. In fact, I am unclear as to exactly why you did not like the book, which is the actual point of writing a review. Debbie, what was it about this book that you did not like-was it the writing, the characters, the plot, the font, the cover? Inquiring minds wish to know.
Ms. Madge(rs) is sorry to say that she did not enjoy reading your review because it lacked substance. She also does not like mayonnaise, elevator music or sunburns and would, upon request, be delighted to elaborate.
To each her own, but I'm afraid I can not "get into" this review at all.
