The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Twelve districts surrounded the capital where the ruthless dictator forced children to compete in a deadly game know by the name of the Hunger Games. In the needy district twelve, Katniss and her sister Prim didn’t believe they’d ever compete in the Hunger Games until one awful day Prim’s name is called and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Katniss will do anything to survive the games but now that she’s within the capitol’s grasp it seems like she may never escape it.
What I Thought of The Hunger Games
Suzanne Collins has yet again rocked the Young Adult world with the Hunger Games. With a fantastic plot and likeable, strong characters the Hunger Games is anything but average. With the perfect blend of action, romance and science fiction this book seemingly instantly became popular and it certainly deserved it. Katniss was believable and relatable but also was the perfect character. She was smart and resilient, a great problem solver and had a strong will to survive. Peeta was caring, sweet and likeable who luckily, didn’t seem excessive. It was because of these too characters that the plot was able to work…And for the readers to enjoy it. Great read I recommend it to just about anyone!
The most unforgettable portion of the Hunger Games is Katniss’s sacrafice to save her sister Prim. It wasn’t only selfless but really brave and noble. Katniss knew her sister would die but at the same time knew she would most likely die too, but she still did it because she knew she had a better chance than Prim.
