The Hunger Games

by Suzanne Collins

Each year the Capitol forces one boy and one gir between the ages of 12 to 18 from each district to fight to the death in a vast arena, that can be anything from a desert to a frozen tundra. There is only one rule in the arena. Stay alive! Only one can win. District 12 has never been very good, but Katniss Everdeen, our hotheaded heroine, is about to change all that. From blood and gore to friendship and romance, this book has it all!

i really liked the first one, but the second one was kind of a let down. The third one was ok though.

Nice review! I love this book. It's almost a sci-fi theme and futuristic. Great plot. Great characters. Whoever likes this book should read the Maze Runner. Same style.

My favorites are the second and first. The third was ok, I love the punchline--'fire is cacthing, and if we burn, you burn with us!'
