Publisher Description

A fight to the death - on live TV. The game show where you kill or die, and where the winner's prize is survival. In District 12, where Katniss Everdeen lives, life is harsh and brutal, ruled from afar by the all-powerful leaders of the Capitol. The climax of each year is the savage Hunger Games - where twelve boys and twelve girls from each District face each other in a murderous showdown. When sixteen-year-old Katniss is chosen to represent her district in the Games, everyone thinks it's a death sentence. Only one person can survive the horrors of the arena. But plucky Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature...

Until quite recently, the best book I had ever read was 'It', by Stephen King. That was until I read 'The Hunger Games. It is an absolutely amazing work of literature, the characters are so well rounded and you find it so easy to empathise with them. The environment and the description therein take some beating. The whole story is just so engaging. I really can't praise this book enough. One word of warning, though, make sure you have the subsequent volumes to hand as you won't want to wait to find out what happens next.

Great read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Although the story is probably intended for a slightly younger audience I thought it was totally riveting right from the start. It had me hooked and half way through I bought the next two books from the trilogy! Cannot wait to start them!
