The Hunger Games
Books | Juvenile Fiction / General
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone fighting against you? Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death -- televised for all of Panem to see. Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

"I love the Hunger Games, the story was so intriguing and yet sad seeing how they use children for their entertainment in a totally different world that we live in. Remind of the Roman Gladiators that have to fight for their life’s. Using children is just barbaric. This was not a book I read during school, I bought it at a thrift shop without its dust cover and decided to read it and love it. The other books I bought it. I am a total fan of the books. This book came out when I was an adult."
