Series: The Hunger Games Trilogy
Age Group: Young Adult
"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 before-and survival."
That's just all I can say after reading this book. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!! I think it is amazing!!!! And if I could I'd give it, like, 10/5 stars!!!!!
This is just amazing! I can't say enough good things about it. It just blew my mind. It also got me thinking about how cruel people can be.
One thing that I found interesting was that it was set in the future and North America is in ruins. I really liked that, I don't know why, I guess I just thought it was different.
This book is very violent though, I think they changed the rating from 12+ to 14+ and for good reason. Now I'm 13 and I read this book when I was 12 and everyone thinks 12 year olds are innocent but most of them aren't and could totally handle this book.
I think you guys should definitely go out and get this book. It is an AMAZING read!! Suzanne Collins did a great job in writing this story! I really really really hope all of you read it at some point in your life :)
Live, Love, Laugh.... Read!
