Review: The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Published October 1st 2008 by Scholastic, Inc.ublished:

"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 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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love.



I have definitely waited too long to read this series, but I'm glad I have started it!

This was a epic, thrilling ride, with some unexpected turns that delight. Definitely a book I think everyone should read!

I can't wait to find out more about the Capitol! And what in the world is going to happen next?

Definitely has the potential to become one of my favourite series!


I don't know if I'm "feeling" Peeta so much. He is fine as a character, but I don't know if he is right for Katniss. But I might change my mind in the next books.

Rue was one of my favourite characters. So sad :(

I'm glad you enjoyed the first book! :) As a fangirl, I always get a little excited when I read reviews about The Hunger Games. Hope you like the next two books! :)
