The book no one can stop talking about . . . 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 is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead 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. New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

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 saw the movie first and found it confusing. The book is so much better! They left too much out in the movie. You will love these books and the characters!
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.
