The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
“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. “ – Amazon.com
I am sure many of you have either read this book or seen the movie and gosh I love this book! I never expect myself to enjoy reading this genre of books, after all, I didn’t read any of the Harry Potter or Twilight series but this book was awesome. I just can’t put it down and when I did, I wish I don’t have to work or do other things but just hole up in a corner to quickly finish the book! The main character Katniss is easy to love and though it is set in a tragic plot where young children have to kill each other to survive just for pure entertainment, it is chillingly sick yet exciting. It made me root for Katniss throughout the book as thought I came from the same district of Panem too.
