Synopsis of The Hunger Games: In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.
Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
I'm not telling the description for Catching Fire because for those who haven't read The Hunger Games yet would have their book spoiled for them.
Yes, this time I'm hitting y'all with a double whammy! After I finished The Hunger Games I just had to have the sequel! So here it is!
The Hunger Games was a brilliant and complex story filled with mystery, action, sci-fi, and (my favorite) romance. The many layers in this tale with keep you entertained and begging for more. My friend had said that this book was really good so I checked it out. I had huge doubts, though. I mean, even the title was weird for me. The Hunger Games. Strange, right? But now, I'm so glad I took the chance.
Collins is a pure genius for writing such an exciting and unexpected book! Though, I wanted to vomit with all the times Katniss kissed Peeta. (I'm strongly and immovably Team Gale, 100%.) If you haven't read this book, you have to. It's that good. Each page turn will keep you captured in the futuristic and dangerous world. I couldn't put it down.
