The Hunger Games
Suzanne Collins has written the thrilling book, The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games are a cruel and vicious tournament set in place years in the future where children fight each other till the death. Katniss Everdeen is the sole provider for her family, her mother and sister Prim. She hunts in the forest, which is forbidden by the Capital, with her only friend Gale. On the day of the reaping, her younger sister Prim gets picked as a tribute for the Games. Katniss then volunteers to take her sister’s place, as she is too young and too innocent to be thrown into the arena. Peeta Mellark, Katniss’s secret admirer from when they are children, gets reaped, as well. Once in the arena, Peeta makes unlikely allies with the Careers, the tributes from District 1 and 2, while Katniss keeps to herself until she meets Rue. With her exceptional hunting skills with a bow and arrow there is a chance that she could win and make it back to her family and Gale. The Games will either make her a Victor or she will never return home to District 12.
Suzanne Collins uses easy context with minimum words that I did not understand. Every Chapter was filled with action that drew me in each time. The Hunger Games is part of a series that continues to get better and better. There are movies that make the book more real and vivid. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who liked The Maze Runner Series, Divergent, and to people who like action books with a hint of romance. Erica B.; Teen Reviewer
