Description:In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
What can I say i loved this book, it was so not what I expected. I was fast paced and very full of adventure, it kept me wanting to read more and more..I was very sad when it ended, i just wanted it to go on... There was some parts in this book that totally shocked me, an had me sat at the edge of my seat..
Katniss:All Katniss has in her life is her mother and sister primrose and a couple of very close friends, so when primrose (prim) is picked out to play the hunger games, 16 year old Katniss feels she should take her place to protect her..she cant deal with maybe loosing her sister in the hunger games so she goes instead.It is a very hard to leave her friends and family nowing she might never see them again, but she finds new frineds along the way.....i love Katniss in this book and i think she is very strong and very brave to go through what she did and make it out alive.
Peeta: what to say about peeta, he is strong and kind.He has loved Katniss since they were both very little but never got the chance to tell her, now he is in the hunger games and has to deal with the thought that he might never get the chance to show her how he feels..So he decides to try keep Ktniss alive no matter what it costs, even if it is his own life..
Gale: Katniss is long time friend, he has been close to Katniss for years and now she is entered into the hunger games he realises that he likes her more then friends, he finds it hard to watch while she fights for her life..I used to think i would of lied to see Katniss end up with Gale but towards the end of the 3rd book i totally change my mind...
Over all I loved this book, it is so different to what I would normaly read.it was so jam-packed with action and adventure and may I add some very sad bits....There was bits in this book that all most had me crying like a little girl...*sigh* ..But that will be our little secret, so shhhh dont tell any one...lol...
I think this book is a must read, I think you all will love it and all so be very shocked at some of te things that happen.....So go out and buy it and give it a try, make sure to tell me what you thing...
