Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. But Katniss has been clse to death before--and survival, for her, is second nature. The Hunger Games is a searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present. Welcome to the deadliest reality TV show ever...
My son suggested that I should read this book, it was a great read which I enjoyed heaps & found I it hard to put down....looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
Would recommend this book to adults & tennagers.
I began Hunger Games with a definite lack of excitement. I had run out of books and decided I would read one given to me for Christmas. Boy how glad I was that I did! The trilogy was demolished in two days.
An absolute blockbuster of a novel, that combines a winning formula of adventure, intrigue and genuine thought. I finished the first novel and had to will myself to sleep as I was so excited to read the second. I will not give away plot detail but all I will say is buy this novel straight away! I dare you to put it down!
I had read this book to see if it was suitable for my kids. I did not expect to love it! I read the entire series within 20 hours over the holidays... I just could not put each book down, and had to grab for the next one to see how it ended.
There's plenty of suspense, action and mildly gory violence for my son and just and a charming story of romance for my daughter. An excellent example of how young adult literature should be written: it's intelligent and gripping enough for adults (a.k.a. the parents) as well, and has valuable lessons about politics, ethics and morals for the kids.
Now that all three books are available, this book is even more appealing. This is great book and the first of a great trilogy. If you're looking for a "can't put down" book, this is the first of three. Fantastic for kids or adults that like a good adventure tale.
You wouldn't expect a book about a reality TV show set in the future to be the best book I've ever read. Katniss is a 16 year-old girl who is forced to enter, as a tribute, The Hunger Games in place of her sister. She considers it a death sentence, due to the one rule: Kill or be killed. But what happens when she starts to fall in love with another player? Read the book and find out. This exciting and thrilling book is a real page turner, and even my friends who would rarely pick up a book loved it. My favourite type of book is uaually fantasy. This amazing book had none, and still managed to blow my mind.
This book had me on the edge of my seat
the whole time I was reading it. I read well into
the night and when I had finished it I wanted to read more.
Finding a good book series like The Hunger Games always gets me
excited. All the characters are well developed and the idea of a bunch
of people being chosen unwillingly and put into a dome to fight until there
is only one survivor while the whole world is watching them on TV is very original.
