The Hunger Games – Book ONE
This was a book recommended by my little sister herself 🙂 She was reading on the second book in this series when we met up in Houston a few weeks ago for Devin’s competition. I think my little brother, Isaac has read these as well so I thought I’d give them a try. I have to say thought I had to wait almost 2 weeks to get it at the library here and that’s almost always a great sign!
Here’s the synopsis from Barnes and Noble:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.
I have three words….READ THIS BOOK!!! I have finished the 374 page book in less than 3 days time!! I am now awaiting the call from my local library telling me my copy of books two (Catching Fire) and three (Mockingjay) to arrive ready for me to read. I’ve seriously considered driving the 25 minutes downtown to get them because the online catalog says they are available there….what to do!?!
