The Hunger Games

by Suzanne Collins

In the shattered ruins of a post apocalyptic America, Collins takes us through the dark remains and to Katniss Everdeen. She is forced to compete in the 74th annual Hunger Games, a game where the only rule is to kill, or be killed. Katnisss joins with eleven other girls from across Panem, the remains of America and twelve boys from all of the 12 districts. Her courageous fight, use of manipulation and the hardships of surviving a world fallen apart, is described in a continuously suspenseful mood. The detail that is put into characters and their personalities is awesome and varies from the bulky and erudite Peeta, to the hidden and stealthy Fox-Face. No character is flat or boring and almost all are unique.
This is sure to please everyone in the teenage range, with romance and a love triangle for the girls, whilst action will take over for the boys. In short, The Hunger Games is one of the best books I’ve ever read and not only does it give you the sense of a post apocalyptic world, but makes you relive it, each page an awesome read.

The Hunger Games has a reason for being a best selling book. But this is just the first book…
