I love The Hunger Games and wish the second two books were are good as this one. They're okay, but this one is really great. Katniss is pretty awesome, and so is Peeta. Pretty violent though, but I guess a lot of books are these days. Great story and full of action. I couldn't put this book down!
Based in the near future where humanity is split between the rich and the poor and the poor have to fight for the amusement of the rich. Every year a hand picked group of teenagers are sent off to the wilds where they have to kill or be killed. the last one standing is the winner for everyone else there is only death. If you liked this series you will also love Frenzy a Daniel Jones Story.
The female lead is great and so is the story. There is not much more you can say about it than that.
A great book that features an original idea of a post-apocalyptic world. Extremely well written and makes it very hard to put the book down. You will wonder how Peeta and Katniss will possibly survive, especially since Peeta is at a clear disadvantage. This book will leave you hanging with the idea that the Capitol needs to be brought down and makes you eager to read the next book. A must read.
I loved this book! I picked this book up after some of my friends recommended it to me. After I started the book I couldn't put it down. I was useless for an entire day busy reading. I'm pretty sure this was the first dystopian book I read. The way the author made this world just instantly sucked me in. I was fascinated with the world and how it worked. This book was excellently written!
The Book was very well written. Everything was described very well.
The Hunger Games is an excellent book. I couldn’t put it down. With every page came another exciting moment that I could never just keep to myself. The setting is in the future. In the future world of The Hunger Games, which is based off of North America, is a nation re-named Panem. Feuds cause wars to break out, forcing the government to divide the nation into 13 districts. The government is cruel and pushes the districts to stay is check. The government chooses one boy, and one girl, from each district, every year, to go into an arena and fight to the death on live television. In district 12, Primrose Everdeen get chosen, she is 12 years old, her first year of being in the drawing to be chosen. But her 16 year old sister, Katniss Everdeen volunteers as tribute for her. Then the male chosen, Peeta Mellark, also 16 is her component. The two get taken away to the capital where they meet their other 22 components from the other districts. Katniss and Peeta train, and learn strategies from there mentor, Haymitch. Then they get put into the arena and fight to the death on live television. Who wins? There can only be one victor. Will Katniss survive and be the only one left standing? You’ll just have to read the book to find out! :)
The writing style was great and the constant excitement made it so I could NOT put it down.
The Hunger Games starts out with Katniss Everdeen. She lives in district 12. The capitol has taken over what was North America and turned it into 13 districts. Now only 12 districts. District 13 was blown up by the capitol when the people of district 13 tried to take over. The capitol has been using children as entertainment in the hunger games. The hunger games is broadcasted and it stars 24 children, a boy and a girl from each district. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are the chosen tributes. Will they survive the 74th Hunger Games or will their lack of skill and knowledge destroy them. Just remember the capitol can tear you apart as much as they can build you up.
Very touching. Lots of action and adventure. I loved how it could go from a fast paced action adventure book, to a sort of loving sort of a romantic book.
Brilliantly creative dystopian novel about Katniss Everdeen, a poor teenager who dives into a deadly gladiator event operated by the oppressive government. Romance is intertwined w/ plenty of white-knuckle action. It's one of those books that makes you need to immediately read the second installment (Catching Fire) after finishing it!
Intense plot, gripping action/suspense, great momentum
