THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
rating: 5 of 5 stars

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

MY OPINION

Stunningly, bracingly fantastic, grotesque in its beauty, harsh and honest and breathtaking. I read it in two hours. Unforgettable and impossible to put down. Run, run, run and get your copy now.
