Amazing, I’m really unsure where to start! The Hunger Games is the first in the trilogy of audiobooks by author Suzanne Collins and managed to leave me holding my breath on more than one occasion. This wasn’t the simplest review to write since probably the entire world population has already read the book.

I’ve kept this audiobook in my to-read list for quite a while and  have even given it out to a couple of friends yet never listened to it personally. I’m leary of the hype associated with audiobooks such as this trilogy. I feel like I’m going to be disappointed whenever everyone informs me how wonderful and intense it is and that I assume I’ll like it.

With that said, I eventually let myself to be persuaded into listening. As I read, I met quite a few interesting characters including Katniss, Prim, Gale and Peeta while they prepare for the reaping.
