For those of you who may not know what The Hunger Games is about I'll explain. The book is set in the future where the government of North America has absolute power. They hold a gladiator like competition every year where children, yes little children must fight to the death. A boy and girl from each of the 12 districts must submit their names at least once- although some can enter more in order to receive more food- i.e. Hunger Games.
The main character KatnissEverdeen faces extreme pain and obstacles in this story. But she also discovered true friendship, courage, and humanity. This book is a great adventure and will pull you in from page one. You will fall in love with the rough and tumble Gale, the sweet but powerful Pita, little Rue, and all the other well developed characters. Seriously. This is a good book.
And there are even 2 sequels ( Mockingjay comes out sometime in June):
