An exciting, compelling novel about the future, this book is a must read. The combination of thrilling action, nerve-wracking tension, and sweet love is one that is sure to make you unable to put it down. It’s the first book in a trilogy and I can’t wait to read the others. Here’s what it’s about:
In the future, North America as we know it has disappeared and is replaced by a place called Panem: a place divided by 12 poor districts that are ruled by a merciless government located at the Capitol. Katniss, a 16-year-old girl, is forced to participate in a harsh reality game controlled by the government when she volunteers to take her sister’s place. The show is called ‘The Hunger Games’, where two participants are chosen from each district, totaling to 24 contestants, and have to battle each other to death. Katniss fights fire, thirst, wild animals, and other participants in her fight for survival. But there are other obstacles in the way. Will she make it to the end? And what lie at the finish? Read to find out!
It’s a very exciting book to read but it is a bit disturbing in certain parts. I made myself finish it but it still bothers me now. However, it is very fun so I give it at least 8.7 stars and recommend it for ages 15+. A must read.
