Following the HUGE MIGHTY SUCCESS of my other reviews; here is another one that I didn’t do:
A Chuffing Good Read

The Hunger Games

The books starts with chapter one, when I saw this I was instantly put off. I thought to myself "how blimming predictable" but after ten minutes of moaning and groaning I composed myself and went back to the book. The author of the book uses 'words' throughout the book to tell the story, very cunning I thought. My personal number one book would be the 'touch and feel' sponge bob edition which I enjoyed from beginning to end several times over but this didn't use words. The fact that the book uses words was initially a challenge for me, but I got my Girlfriend to read them out loud for me. This worked I thought. The book is about this girl called Katniss who didn't shave her legs. This part is non fiction as girls are real things cos I know I saw some in school. I didn't like what I saw. The rest of the story is sometimes non fiction because it is set in a place that is not. Called Panem. Which isn't a nice place  in my opinion in fact it's worse then France or something. 

This is where I get confused over the whole fiction/non fiction thing as the writer ladie might of either gone to the future or seen someone from the future and just got the book or she could of made it up in her head. So depending on how the book was attained it is either fiction or non fiction... Not sure. 
something like this...

The book is set in the future.

It is broken up into chapters. 

After a while my girlfriend said she wasn't gonna read it to me any more as she had her own book to read.
Here is where the miracle happens, instead of just having a strop and leaving the book I had a strop and and decided to read it myself. 

This in its self shows how enticing the book must of been. I managed to finish the whole book by myself in my head with no prompting. The story had lots of action and death which I liked. I liked how the writer used the words to make you think you knew the people and things. I am currently reading the second book called 'Catching Fire'. A second point which makes me think the book is probs non fiction is that it wasn't written on paper. It was written on a StarTrek thing called a Kindle made by Amazons. So probs was given to us by Spock or summing. To him it would have been a historical document. 

In conclusion it's a very good book. I am going to be sad when i finish the trilogy but am also excited to. I don't think the mix of emotions will be good for my health in the long run. If you have money, it should be spent on this and then if you can read you should read it, if not get your Girlfriend to read it. If she won't and you can't read don't get the audiobook it's rubbish, you should either put your mind to destroying evil or just sit down and have a good think for about ten minutes or so.
