The Hunger Games
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Winning means fame and fortune. Losing means certain death. The Hunger Games have begun...
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, the shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh 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 regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before--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 - Goodreads
I admit that the book is even better than the movie. I love the details on the book. Most of all, I love how the writer engaged me with the main character. Good book. Great plot. I like it a lot. Although I wasn’t crazy about it. But I’d like to read the continuation of the book. I have the feeling that the story is going to be much more interesting.
