The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was a wonderful book. I personally loved this book. This book takes place in the future in the ruins of North America. There is one capital with 12 surrounding districts. Also known as Panem. Every year there is one boy and one girl chosen to compete in The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a competition where 24 kids fight to the death and whoever wins will get fame and fortune. On the back of the hardcover book it says “Winning means fame and fortune. Losing means certain death. The Hunger Games have begun…” That quote I think shows the intensity of the book, and the quote is very powerful.
The main character is named Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is a tough 16 year old girl, and she is very good with a bow and arrow. She volunteers as a tribute when her younger sister Prim Rose gets chosen as a tribute of the 74th Hunger Games. Katniss goes into the Hunger Games with Peeta Mellark who was chosen as the male tribute from district 12. They travel to the capital and go into the games. I won’t tell you the ending because I don’t want to give it away.
Overall I thought that this was a very good book, and if you have not read it you should go and get it. I thought that Suzanne Collins wrote the book very well. I also enjoy the other two books as well. I thought the second book was almost as good if not better then The Hunger Games. Also they made a movie of the book. I would recommend this book.
