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 each of them 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.

Sixteenyear- 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.

      Comments about The Hunger Games - 3 x Paperbacks in 1 x Boxed Set:

      Loved them. Heart raced every time. The only problem was reading these after two of the movies were out. I could see Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Lawrence etcetera etcetera as their characters. But I still got carried away by the story. It was a great read, pure awesomeness, and utterly disturbing. How can you not be moved by what they all go through? Frightening, heart thumping, and thrilling.. I didn't want each book to end! What do I do now!!?!

              Comments about The Hunger Games - 3 x Paperbacks in 1 x Boxed Set:

              Hubby and I both really enjoyed this trilogy. Its aimed at young adult readers, and I think that's why I enjoyed it so much. Still had an adult storyline, but without the really full-on graphic descriptions of violence/sex crimes/personal crimes that I sometimes feel like I am being force-fed by all tv/film/book media to the point of death by drowning in the dark abyss. Made a nice change

                    Suzanne Collins

                    Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford’s Puppy Days, and a freelancer on Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

                    While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met children’s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children’s books a try.

                    Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, you’re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you’re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, that’s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part fantasy/war series, The Underland Chronicles.

                    Her next series, The Hunger Games Trilogy, is an international bestseller.

                    At present, Suzanne is at work on a picture book with James Proimos.

                    She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.
