If you haven’t read this book yet….GET.ON.IT.
I read it in 3 hours. I literally opened my brain and stuffed this book in there. I know that is meant for Young Adults but I cannot help but love it. I know everyone is rattling on about it and giving it the Twilight hype, but it is actually well written and full of characters you just want to root for.
“Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, “The Hunger Games.” The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place.”
I can’t lie. I cried at points when reading this book. Collins has written really well rounded characters that affect you and make you want to continue reading.
(I am already on book 3 in the trilogy as I type this up!)
