Forget about every book you thought you ever liked, because after reading Hunger Games you won't care to think about any other book! When I first read it, I could not stop. I turned page after page until I realized it was already midnight and I was still reading! I had school the next day so I had to go to bed, but I didn't want to put the book down. It's got action, romance, suspense, and everything else you've always wanted in a book. Girls, boys, moms, and even dads all enjoy this book. My 45 year old math teacher also loves the book, so much so that he read all three books in the trilogy. If you haven't read it, here's a little scoop on what it's about:
Katniss Everdeen is the main character (trust me, she's so much better than Bella from Twilight). She's only a teenager, but she's a tough and talented hunter who puts food on her family's table. Her father is dead and she lives with her mother and sister Prim in District 12 in the country of Panem. Every year the Capitol of Panem hosts an event called the Hunger Games where two "tributes" – a boy and a girl – are drafted from each of the twelve districts to be brought to an arena and fight to the death. Only one person can win. This is to remind the country not to rebel – and for entertainment, of course. This year, unfortunately, Katniss's little sister is selected for the Hunger Games, so Katniss volunteers to take her place. Her experience in the Hunger Games is something you do not want to miss. So please go read it - NOW! You can thank me later <3
By the way, the movie is coming next year! I can't wait!!
