Hunger for Books

This year my goal was to read 10 books. As of now, I have read 9 and I am starting my tenth book. As a reader I have been able to read faster and pay attention more. Also, I have started reading more books out of my comfort zone. I have been reading every night before I go to sleep. My new book I am reading is The Hunger Games. In the book I liked the part where katniss first got chosen to be in the games. After they draw prims names katniss states, "leave? How could I leave Prim, who is the only person in the world I am certain I love? And Gale is devoted to his family. We can't leave, so why bother talking about it?" This quote showed a rhetorical question and made it more interesting to read and made me think more about what I was reading.  Katniss shows her love for these 2 characters using a rhetorical question.  I am planning to finish this book soon and try to read it faster than I have before. This book is out of my comfort zone for books, usually I have gotten bored reading action books although I am trying to finish this book with out getting bored.

  1. I'd like to know more about why you think the author used rhetorical questions or how the book attempts to answer those questions. Thanks for sharing!
