Sypnosis: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 steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But 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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
My Review,Thought,Feeling,etc on this book: I finally got my hands on it!!!(: I've been hearing good things about it and I finished it in one day. Here are 3 main things that stood out for me in the book making me want to read it:
- Katniss and Peeta make a really becoming couple,even though they have a fake romance in the book for survival. They really balance each other out Katniss, aperson who's really strong yet feels. And there's Peeta who's sly and mysterious in the begining of the book and showing who he really is
- The first person point of view she choose helped the reader to really connect and in most cases with FPPOV for me I hate it, but Suzanne Collins did it in a really good way!!:):)
- The way the society is structured really added to the excitedment of the story and the way everything connents, creating a really epic story. LOVED,LOVED<3 IT SO MUCH
