The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I give this book 5 Stars!!!

Description:  Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

Walk..wait maybe you should the bookstore, library or wherever you gets book and pick up a copy of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  I've read many wonderful things about this book.   And if you look at ratings on Barnes and Noble or maybe Amazon, you can see it gets overall fantastic reviews.   This made me hesitant, because I don't want to be disappointed.  It's why I put off reading the Twilight and Harry Potter series for so long. But, I'm glad I didn't wait for this one (or least wait too long).  Tthis book was everything I hoped and was looking for in a new series. I've read a lot of books this year, and only one other has captured my attention the way this one did. I borrowed this from the library, but you can bet I will be buying my own copy now.   I have to warn you though, its part of a supposed trilogy.  Apparently there were quite a few people who were upset by this (some people don't like books in a series while others didn't realize and were disappointed by abrupt ending).  The sequal "Catching Fire" just came out on September 1st.  


  1. my favorite book HANDS DOWN! Just finished Catching Fire today, and MAN IS IT AMAZING!!!!! I can't get it out of my head!!! TEAM PEETA!

  2. Mary - I may just have to go out and buy Catching Fire. I'm trying to refrain from buying anymore books at the moment. I don't think it's going to work.
    I'll have to decide after Catching Fire which team, although I'm leaning towards Team Peeta!


I love comments!
