The Hunger games by Suzanne Collins


Review for : The Hunger games by Suzanne Collins

I recently read the Hunger games by Suzanne Collins and it was amazing. The plot was original and very interesting. I was more than satisfied when I finished reading it. To begin, the book is about the ruins of a place that was previously known as North America where lied the nation of Panem. Panem is surrounded by twelve districts where each one contributes it’s own service. And to make sure the districts are disciplined the Capitol forces them to participate in the annual Hunger games, a fight to the death between one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen from each district.

"As close to a perfect adventure novel as I've ever read"

Rick Riordan, author of The Percy Jackson series and The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones

If chosen you must fight to the death and if you win, you bring fame, riches and honor to you’re district। When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen’s sister Primerose is chosen to compete she cannot bear it and volunteers in her place. Katniss regards The hunger games as a death sentence but she isn’t new to fighting for her survival. When her father died she took it upon herself to care for her mother and little sister. But will the things she has learned hunting and trading be enough to win The hunger games?
"Enthralling, imaginative and creepy"

Los Angeles Times

I found The hunger games to be a nail biting, addicting and an enthralling experience. It was simple blunt but full of mystery and action. I would recommend this book to anybody, boy or girl even those who are older. It’s a great read and I cannot wait for Catching fire which comes out in September.

  3. I agree with wdebo. It would have to be in my top 3 for this year. I absolutely love Suzanne Collins! I read her The Underland Chronicles religiously. I'm so excited for Catching Fire. I'm just waiting for it to come in the mail.
