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 Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

BookLender review by Jennifer on 2010-08-01 23:48:32

This is a wonderful, fast-paced, adventure written for young adults, but VERY MUCH enjoyed by old adults. If you ever wanted to share with your daughter a strong female character who faces difficult decisions and impossible choices, this is your chance!My book club spent hours discussing this book, so deep, so rich, so relevant!

This book as well as the others in this series were absolutely great.. Unlike many YA books, was written smartly enough to keep my nonya attention. Easy read yet a great story. Very thought provolking. Makes you really think what if. Great read for all.

This book was amazing! I loved reading it! It kept me up late into the night and when I did go to bed, everytime I woke up, I was thinking about the book.Suzanne Collins does an excellent job of writing her characters and setting her book in this made up world.I would definitely recommend this book and whole series to anyone.
