A Reading Vocation
A Reading Vocation rated it 5 years ago
Reading this book was like reading a collection of essays by an incredibly articulate college class.It's been a long time since I've read "critical reviews" like this, and it seems perhaps I've lost the taste for it. I guess I just expected something different than for a bunch of YA authors to write...

Not by Rick Riordan, but about his books. Just thought I would mention that as it seems that some readers are buying this based on the premise that it is a new Riordan book.A collection of thoughts and essays by other authors on books written by Riordan.On a side note I loved the introduction to the...

This book was okay. The analyses were surface level and for the most part failed to extrapolate to real world situations, which was both useless and cowardly. The strong themes of the Hunger Games, and (especially) young readers looking for more, deserve better treatment than this book offered.

Seen at Scott Reads It!I have been a Hunger Games fan ever since 2008 and I remember when THG wasn't the global phenomenon it is today. In fact I remember recommending THG to a few of my classmates and I remember them telling me it sounded stupid and ridiculous. **Fast Forward 4 Years** The same peo...

Commentary and analysis and just plain old opinions from some YA authors and it is a great collection. I did not care overly much for this series by the time I had slogged through Mockingjay. But these authors did such a great job at presenting their cases in their essays and raise some very interes...

I feel as if I need to defend my stance on any polarising books. Although, as G.K. Chesterton just pointed out to me, if my audience is set in their views nothing I say can persuade them otherwise. Eitherway when it comes to [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)|Suzanne...

Such a powerful book - I didn't expect to be so blown away by it. Every section brings a new idea into mind, exposing these characters we know as never before, breaking them down and showing us the raw emotion and their human nature that we sometimes overlook when reading the series.

Some essays were better than others, but all were thought provoking for the teen market this is geared to. Helpful for teachers who might be talking about one or more of the books at a bookclub.

As many of you know, I love The Hunger Games series and was an English major in college. This means that while I’m passionate about YA literature, I’m also used to reading academic essays. So when I heard a book of essays about one of my all time favorite YA series was coming out, I had a feeling it...
