About the Book
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a science fiction story, about an annual event between two districts that requires two participants to fight to the death in a televised battle. Summary Of The Book The Hunger Games is narrated by the protagonist of the story, Katniss Everdeen. The story unfolds in the district of Panem, during the post-apocalyptic period. The district has a time-honoured tradition called the Hunger games. Two participants (a girl and a boy) are chosen via a lottery system from each district, to fight until death, in an area filled with forests, lakes, and mountain ranges. When her sister Primrose is chosen to participate in the game, Katniss adamantly volunteers to go in her place. The male competitor from District 12 is Peeta, the baker’s son. Both participants are taken to an area called the Capitol. The Capitol is a harsh and cruel place. They keep all the districts on edge by forcing them to send a girl and boy, between the ages of 12 to 18, to fight in the Hunger games. Once the contestants reach the Capitol, their coach Haymitch Abernathy, his assistant Effie, and their designer Cinna, work together to create a strategy for both players to enact in the battlefield. Katniss and Peeta have to behave like star-crossed lovers who couldn’t stand to inflict pain on each other. The goal is to create a memorable impression and gather extra sponsorship. After weeks of preparation, Peeta and Katniss enter the Arena to fight. Here, it is important to remain alive, but Katniss can not bear the thought of killing tributes and becoming a murderer. How can the star-crossed lovers defy the Capitol and still stay alive? In the end, both have to fight to stay alive, but will the Capitol ever agree to two victors instead of one?

(Enticing book)

The Hunger games one word WOW! Now I’m going to be honest here, I’m not a big fan of reading especially long books. Even though this book wasn’t so long the way the book is written it keeps you enticed after just three pages into the book you can start to in vision all the characteristics of the surrounding environment in which Katiness lives in. The attention to detail in depicting all of the different types of characteristics is astonishing. No matter what the situations it is really a mind trip. From the detail of her surrounding, to her hunting, to her at the games, or her at the arena you can in vision every part of the story as it is told.
After I read The Hunger games I was really excited to see the movie… but when I actually got around to viewing the movie I was sadly disappointed at the results. The movie got some of the major aspects of the book but the book has more details than the movie. This book has been one of my favorite books so far even though I don’t read a lot. One this you can be sure of from this book is that you will find yourself in a completely different surrounding than you actually are in. I would also recommend to go to a park or somewhere quiet where you can really be able to visualize in greater detail the book. This was a great book that till now I have read three times really recommend it.
