My Review of “The Hunger Games”

Okay, so I should mention at the outset that I haven’t read the book or seen the movie. But come on, you can’t open a newspaper, magazine or website without seeing all the hype.
The heroine of the story is a teenage girl named Katnipp Evergreen. (Her name comes from an edible plant called katnipp.) Apparently she is very hungry. It could be anorexia or bulimia or something like that or it could be that she spends all her money on “Twilight” memorabilia and doesn’t have any money left over for food.
Katnipp is forced by Donald Sutherland to fight for her life and to choose between two love interests who moonlight as Abercrombie & Fitch models. I think one is a vampire and one is a werewolf but I could be wrong.
Anyway, she has to survive in the wilderness while being followed by people from a reality TV show (I would have thought the show was “Survivor” but turns out it isn’t).
I don’t want to spoil the ending, mostly because I don’t know it. If, after all this, you’re still interested in the story, ask any teenage girl! Or just rent “The Running Man.”
