This title is first in the ground-breaking "Hunger Games" trilogy. Set in a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying reality TV show is taking place. Twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called The Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed. When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her younger sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.
I tried reading this when I was 12, but couldn't get into it. Its been a year and I tried again - amazing! I actually can't believe the book and film are so similar! The story is original and is written so well. Well done Suzanne! You will only understand how good it is once you've read it! Fantastic!
This book is fantastic, I read it in a day, just couldn't put it down! Haven't felt this way about a book since the Twilight and Harry Potter series.
