Hunger Games

Katniss lives in District 12. She is soon to be known as the Girl of Fire.
Every year, the Capital puts on the Hunger Games. It is basically a way to punish people for rebelling. Kids 12-18 have their name entered in a drawing, and if their name is picked, they go into an arena and fight the other kids until death from hunger, murder, or other. Katniss ends up in the Hunger Games. Katniss misses her friends, Gale, while she has to put up with Peeta, who she doesn’t know how she feels about him. Her hunting and plant skills come in handy to keep her alive, as they did in District 12, a very poor district.

I thought the Hunger Games was very good. I loved the way the author made up a complete political system and portrayed different feelings among the characters. I liked how she created the events in the Hunger Games in Hunger Games and the other character’s personalities.

I would recommend this to young adults that like survival/adventure stories.

I think I can compare this book to Molly Fyde because they are both in the future and so different than many books. They are both great sci-fi adventures (although Hunger Games is more adventurous and less sci-fi).
