Every now and then there comes a book that is really unique.
Like the story isn’t one that I had heard of before. Or if it was, it has a different twist that kept me interested.
Well that’s how I felt about The Hunger Games.
The only thing I didn’t like about it was that I thought it was a little short. I wished that it was longer because I didn’t want it to end.
Great book and I totally recommend it and give it 5 stars.
Here is the Amazon description:
the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. Collins’ characters are completely realistic and sympathetic as they form alliances and friendships in the face of overwhelming odds; the plot is tense, dramatic, and engrossing.
