Hunger Games By: Suzanne Collins (Contest as well)

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 other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor tohis or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Sixteen-year-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 impoverished district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before?and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. (Summary thanks to Chapters Indigo)

So lets start off with the truth I went into reading this book with no hopes to like it, the only reason was that other bloggers kept tell me I was missing out since it was awesome. It was one of those book I kept seeing 5 star reviews and a bad one here, and there. Well I just finished and what I thought was WOW OH WOW did I love it. This book had me always on my toes. Hunger Games had me captivated from the first chapter. This book was so well written and the storyline while unique was totally weird, and gruesome.  Hunger games was a mix in between the Lord of the Flies meet Survivor the reality show except no one ever got voted off the island unless there were dead.

    The characters well nicely picked and well developed while yet leave some mystery. Katniss a girl who is her family's dependent and the sole provider. She the rock anyone could ask for her sisters could have been the one going to the Games, but Katniss soft heart could never let her poor helpless Prim go to the games, but don't let the soft spot fool you Katniss is tough a Warrior if I might add. SPOILER............. ALERT..................... SPOILER......... I was actually hopping gale went to the games, but in the end I adore Peeta ..... SPOILER ........... END............ By the way I adore Suzanne Collin's creavtivty with everything from Character names, Places this is what I'm talking about if your going to change the book setting to the future don't put people still using type writters let everything convert like names. Not just the idea and the year.

This book is based how the world turn Crazy if I must say. This futuristic world is plain cruel making kids compete for there lives and only one must live, while everyone is watching them act like animals to protect themselves. This book really gets you thinking about if our world could ever get so sympathetic (not the word i want but i'll settle) where we watch these actions and take it as entertainment, and not real life. I told you it gets you thinking. 

In conclusion this book is a total page turner that will always have you on your toes. You will not see anything coming very unpredictable. This is a well written book that I think everyone should. I don't even know what you would call this Genre (is this dystopia?? asks the girl who doesn't know what it is). Lets just say a Sci-Fi thriller you don't want to miss. Cover is cool and title of the novel fits awesomely well (dunno if thats a word but OK!)

I would Personally Rate this Novel: 5
