“Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one 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.” –Goodreads
|I loved this! I read it in 1 day and then I got mad because it was for vacation and I didnt have anything else to read. I can’t wait to start reading the second one and find out what happens with Peeta and Gale and seeing who Katniss will choose. There was a lot of action and it was really easy to keep up with what was going on. The adventure was also really good and if you don’t know anything about survival you can learn somethings from Katniss trying to survive. I also really liked how Katniss changed in the course of the Games.
I’m hoping for Peeta because I read about him in this one but we’ll see.
Over all: 5 out of 5
