The Hunger Games follows the main protagonist Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is a sixteen-year old girl, living in District 12 in Panem. Each year, a girl and boy are taken from each district to fight in the Hunger Games. However, one day Katniss’s sister is chosen and without much thought Katniss volunteers herself instead. The Hunger Games to Katniss is a death sentence because she must kill the rest of the competitors to be the ultimate winner and that seems unlikely.
This book was a rollercoaster of emotions. There wasn’t any point where it dragged and I couldn’t put it down. My favorite character was probably Peeta, basically Katniss’s friend and ally (I am definitely Team Peeta). I would definitely recommend this book if you love action and fighting. Also if you like this book there are two more books in the series!
