By: Suzanne Collins
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? 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.
so here is the thing.. i did not like this book because
a. kinda bad writing IN MY OPINION.
b. i just could not sympatize with the characters, and especially not Katniss.
i think its important that you can sympatize with the character you are readimg about.. and i just.. could not
but since i bought the whole series i felt that i had to read them 2. and after i've finishd the third book (alot of tears and sobbing, how could Suzanne do that!?) i started to question myself. was the first book and the second one really that bad? because i loved the third book
