Imagine being thrown in an arena with 23 other people all ready to kill you at any moment. That's basically was the Hunger Games is all about. The hunger games was written by Suzanne Collins in September 2008. The genre has been listed as Dystopian Literature, meaning its a nightmare of a place, the opposite of a utopia.
It tells a story of a land that lives completely different from us. Everyone is always starving and searching for ways to stay alive, life is a real challenge for them but its nothing compared to being in The Hunger Games. A city of people, rich beyond belief, take people from the other 12 cities or "districts" and put them in an enclosed area to fight to the death. Katniss, a strong girl from district 12 has hunted for her family for all her life. She loves her little sister, Primrose, more than anything. Sadly, she is thrown into the games and the real hunt begins.
I really enjoyed this book. The Hunger Games keeps you so interested in it the whole time and that's why I liked it so much.There wasn't a single moment where I was bored. If you like hearing about other ways we could live or people with completely different lives, this book is for you.
These are the three books in the series, The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and The Mocking Jay
We live in a world where we are safe and people want the best for us. For the districts, its the complete opposite, they dread each coming day with starvation and survival. Katniss is lucky to have the ability to hunt food for her family and trade. It would be frustrating to live like that when the people is the rick city above, The capitol, are living like kings.
Katniss gets hurt multiple times during the games and that alone establishes the terrible conditions they are put through. Not to mention they are killing each other left and right. I would give more insight but I don't want to ruin this fabulous book if you were thinking of reading it.
The hunger games has so many good quotes but my favorite was "You don't forget the face of the person who was your last hope." I like this quote because it shows how innocent all the people were before the games and how much it changed them. There's no turning back from that.
