Let The Hunger Games Begin!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The only reason I got into reading this book is because my brother bought it for me as a christmas present, but man am I thankful for his kindness! If it wasn’t for the piles of academic readings and assignments I’ve had to work on, I would never have put that book down. I managed to finish it today, and I was nearly crying by the end. It’s such an interesting concept that gets you thinking; ‘would you be able to do what Katniss did if you were in that situation?’ It really makes a normal, and even somewhat boring life seem wonderful 🙂

“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 regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. Butu Katniss has been close to dead before – and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.”
