Who else would enjoy this book? I think someone that is into to action, and fiction would really enjoy this book. Someone that likes to watch those survival fight to the death reality television shows would also like this book. If you also like reading intense and suspenseful books then you would like this book to. You would also enjoy this book since it sends an important message, strong female lead character, original plot, good concept, and good character development. The plot in the book keeps moving and keeps you reading to find out what happens next. You would also like this book because, it has a realistic setting. And I would recommend you reading it because, you could actually see a society devastated by war resulting to politics that brought on the hunger games. What specific elements did you like about the novel? This book has human elements where humans face tremendously difficult circumstances as well as dilemmas. It also portrays sacrificing oneself for another as admirable, which I find shocking in today's self-centered society. It also has connections to historical events like the Gladiator Games in Rome, fascination with reality television, discussion of human nature ,and government. I like that fire is an element in the book when Cinna designs Katniss outfits which show her bravery, and personality. I also like the mocking jay pin that Katniss has on her chest, so that she can always think about her sister Prim, and so that it shows that she's representing for her district also. I also like how it has a mix of action, drama, suspense, and mystery. The book also gives us a better dynamic then the movie does.
Heroine Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, the poorest district in Panem. Each year, the twelve districts are forced to offer two children( one male and one female) to participate in a nationally televised event called the hunger games. When Katniss' younger sister Prim is chosen, Katniss volunteers to take Prim's place in the games. Katniss joins Peeta Mallark, the male tribute, and their mentor Haymitch on the train to the Capitol. In the end Katniss and Peeta are left. They agree to take poison berries in a suicide pact rather than kill each other. Desperate to face, the Capitol halts the games, allowing both contestants to win-and live.
