Synopsis

The book no one can stop talking about . . . In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

    I needed to read this book for school, and honestly, I had very low expectations for it. I thought it was going to be a floofy, lame read about a teenage girl that got over publicized and would not be very interesting. Boy, was I wrong! A few pages after I started, I was hooked; I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Honestly, I hadn't been that excited to read a book from cover to cover in years. And needless to say, forgoing sleep and meals was simply a requirement in order to finish and get onto books 2 and 3 in the series (I have since caught up on both). Seriously, just because it's popular or mainstream does not in any way take away from Collins's skill of story telling. I just wish this book existed when I was a teenager!!

    Wow

    Well...I couldn't put it down. I read it everywhere I could for as long as I could. And when it ended I immediately had to purchase the next book. Just. Wow! Simply written (obviously for a younger audience than myself) but a gripping and compelling story. Dark. Very dark. Not a happy feel good book but a powerful one. Definitely recommend.

    entertaining read

    Really liked it! Ended up reading the sequels as well. Prefect for a cottage or beach, maybe not for kids under 10
