Twelve boys and twelve girls from each district are chosen from a lottery (also known as the reaping) forced to appear in a live event called The Hunger Games.
There is only one rule: kill or be killed.
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdee steps forward to take her younger sister’s place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence and uses her skills to try and survive the arena.

Where to begin! I was so excited to start reading this book (and i have not seen the film) as i have herd so much about it.
Now i know why- it is by far the best book i have read since Harry Potter 🙂 The storyline is so unique and Suzanne Collins keeps you in suspense at every chapter, and makes you feel like your apart of the games working along side the main character Katniss in the arena. Such a page turner and you actually feel scared and nervous for Katniss from the moment she is taken away. It makes you think would i survive the games? Even the logic of how they pick out the names is so in depth and the history of why it came about makes you think its real life.
The creepy way the capitol projects the deaths of a tribute (one girl and one guy from each of the 12 districts) in the arena into the night sky for all to see to how they got their training scores helping those tributes get sponsors (that send out supplies in the area if they need them) is amazing pieces of writing. For those who like survival stories this book is a gem for your collection! At no point in the book did i get bored and the plot stayed on track unlike most books.
Pure joy in reading this book and left the ending in such a way i now cannot wait to start the 2nd book to see what happens!
