Synopsis

The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture! The astonishing bestseller is now a fantastic movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover. (Original cover version also available.) 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.

About to use this for my advanced ESL class and it features interesting themes and classic features of a dystopic novel. Also great opener to discuss young adult issues.

This book is absolutely amazing. It is the best book I have ever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am twelve years old and I would recommend that anyone from my age and up should read it as there are some violent and gruesome scenes in it that would not be suitable for younger children.

Read them all
May 18th, 2013
I got so emotionally involved with the characters, and so did my family, that we were discussing the events in the book over dinner some nights. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but do read all three books. It's essential for character development and for your involvement and understanding - I don't know how to explain it. I don't usually watch the movies of books that I've loved-a movie can never do the book justice, but I saw this movie first and loved how I could see the characters from the movie in my head, when I read the books. They were all perfectly cast. Can't wait for the next two movies.
