The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger GamesKatniss Everdeen lives in a world far different from our own. The Capitol City, ringed by 12 districts, demands two tributes every year to compete in The Hunger Games. A boy and a girl from each district are taken to the capitol to compete in the ultimate reality TV show – survival of the fittest, a literal fight to the death. A show where you not only have to survive, you have to impress your sponsors to get needed supplies. The last one left standing is the winner. Sixteen year old Katniss volunteers for the horrors of The Hunger Games when her 12 year old sister’s name is drawn, and she can’t bear to let Prim compete. She and Peeta, her fellow District 12 tribute, travel to the capitol, and see first hand the luxury those in the capitol live in, compared to the crushing poverty of their own district. Katniss struggles, not only with the situation at hand, but with her own feelings, fears, and the reality that, with all the performing for the cameras, she’s not sure who she really is. The Hunger Games is fascinating, involving, and hard to put down. The book has been optioned for a movie.

  1. You have GOT to read this book. It starts out great and just keeps on going. You won’t believe how this story turns out. And with the ending, there could be a sequel! MAKE THE MOVIE!!!!!

  2. This is an amazing book, and I’m pretty sure the sequel is coming out later this year. Once I started, it was really difficult to put it down.

    Call me crazy, but I think Kat belongs w/ Peeta.

  3. I think that THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins is an incredible book so far.I am only at chapter 7 page 97,but its is really good.Suzanne gives so much detail,leave nothing out.I love the hunger games and I can’t wait to read on.

  4. The Hunger Games is a powerful story with loads of action, suspense, love and drama. My favorite part was from page 1 to 374. I would recommend this book to anyone age 10 to 110. This book puts you in her world and takes you into Katniss’ world and takes you away from you’re own. I would sit in bed reading this book for hours at a time. When the book ended I just had to read the second.

  5. They are making the movie! The cast is going to be awesome, and even if you don’t think so at first, see some interviews with the characters they’ve selected, and see the look they have for katniss when jennifer lawrence is all done up in her make up, and you’ll be convinced that it’s going to rock.
