Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? 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 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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

What did you think?

I liked it a lot but some of you may agree or disagree with me here... I preferred the Divergent Trilogy.

A brilliant book. It is still one of my favourite all time books. I really like the way it lets you inside Katniss' mind.

Gigi (triv_s) | 8 comments I can't speak highly enough of this book. I read it years and years before it was popular--when I read it people would make fun of me for reading such a "boring and stupid" book--and I still love it now. The movie just made me love it more. I definitley prefered it to Divergent, I just feel like it has more substance, but they are written in very similar ways.

I also read this book a few months after it was released and I read and bought the other books as soon as they came out. In way, after all the hype surrounding the movies, I was proud that I had managed to discover them all by myself. I love this series.
