The Hunger Games

By: Suzanne Collins

This is what the cover of the book looks like.

Summary of the Story

Set in a future known as "Panem", the Capitol selects a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each of the twelve districts to compete in the annual "Hunger Games", a televised fight-to-the-death. The film is centered around Katniss Everdeen. She is a 16-year-old girl from District 12, who volunteers for her 12-year-old sister, Prim, when Prim's name is chosen. Katniss's fellow District 12 tribute, Peeta Mellark, who she has history with. Katniss is then rushed to the Capitol, where she undergoes intense training before being put into the arena to fight to become the victor of the seventy-fourth annual Hunger Games.

Personal Reflection

I personally love this book and the whole trilogy. It has great characters and a great conflict. Suzanne Collins is a great writer. I would without a doubt give 5 out of 5 stars. It is a FANTASTIC book.

This is Suzanne Collins.


I recommend this book to people who enjoy action books, or people who love cliff hangers. This book is different from all the other books. It has so many conflicts. I also recommend it to people who don't like reading. This will defiantly change your perspective on reading.
