The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

IN THE RUINS of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all the send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to the her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before--and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.


My Thoughts:
This book is amazing. Absolutely incredible!!! 1st you have this world. that once was North America!!!! And the controlling people in the Capitol. You have to fight for your life. Rather is killing your food, or trading things for better. Sometimes even that isn't available. I couldn't imagine.
Then you have the "Hunger Games"! What kind of crap is that? You have a game, a real-life game that you add humans in and sit at home, and watch them.... FIGHT FOR THERE LIVES... Killing, hunting, trying to survive through hunger, dehydration, and the fact that there in a GAME. Last one alive wins.. I mean wow. This girl Katniss volunteers herself. Taking her sisters spot. What a brave, girl she is. & she is a figther, that's for sure. Then she's up against from her district Peeta.
I mean i don't want to sit here and give away a bunch of spoilers. For those who haven't read it. BUT that's so hard for this book. Because its so amazing i just want to type all the pages up for you to read. NO, not really :)
But, in this book there's love. hate. anger. all that. every emotion you can think of you read about in this book. and you feel as well.
So, who does she choose??? Peeta the one she's "forced" to pretend to love, but the boy who says he's loved her since she was 5. Or does she love Gale. Then boy whom she hunts with, and spent many countless days talking, and getting food for there families...
Well, I DON'T KNOW.... The book is made that way.. so that you will run out to the store at 1am with you tattered pj's and flip flops on and buy Catching Fire!!!!
Bottom line..

My husband caught me in some sort of Hunger games trance.:)

  1. I think I looked just like you while reading that book---and let me tell you, it's even better on re-reads. you'd think it wouldn't be so suspenseful the second, third, or fourth time around, but it is! She is awesome and I can't wait for Mockingjay!!!
