The Hunger Games“Happy Hunger Games, and may the odds be ever in your favor!” A sentence everyone in the 12 districts across North America dreads. It’s a horrid annual event invented by the Capitol to show how the Capitol is superior to the 12 districts. Two tributes, a girl and a boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen, from each of the twelve districts are drafted to participate in the Hunger Games. A total of 24 tributes will fight each other to the death in an arena for entertainment. Only one victor will emerge.

The Hunger Games turns out to be a sad reality for a sixteen- year old citizen of district 12 , Katniss Everdeen. Katniss’ sister, twelve- year old Prim, was drafted to be the girl tribute of district twelve but Katniss voluntarily took Prim’s place. Luckily, Katniss has spent most of her life after after her father died learning get resources so her family could survive. With her bow and arrow Katniss can achieve a lot. But will her experience be enough? The tributes from other districts are stronger than her. With her fellow tribute who is also acting as her lover, Peeta Mellark, Katniss will go through training and eventually enter the arena to put on a treacherous show. Let the games begin.

This is a brilliantly written novel which consumes you from the very beginning. You won’t want to put it down. You will go on adventure with Katniss Everdeen and learn about other tributes with her. In this book you’ll feel like you’re right there with the characters. I’m not really into the genre of adventure but the whole concept of the book made me love it. It shows love, independence, and an unthinkable fictional future for North America. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like a good read and is into intense adventure stories.
