Winning means fame and fortune. Losing means certain death. The Hunger Games have begun. . . .
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.

After Harry Potter I didn't know what to do with myself, but luckily the odds were in my favor with the Hunger Games trilogy. Absolutely love them all. From the characters I quickly fell in love with to the captivating story, this trilogy captured my heart and 100% of my attention. Highly recommend these books to all!
I read it on my kindle and It was awesome I really recommend you to buy it and if you watch the movie I am sure you will like it
I watched the movie first, and I decided I would read the books. You know because movies leave so much out, and they really did on this one.
This book is amazing and I highly recommend it.
