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:

            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:

                    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
