I am currently reading The Hunger Games again. I have read this trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins many times. I really like her style of writing, so after I finished The Hunger Games trilogy I read her other series, Gregor The Overlander. The Hunger Games are classified as science fiction, the first book is very action packed, with a little bit of romance making this a best seller novel.
The Hunger Games takes place in the future of North America that has turned into one country called Panem. Panem is divided into 12 districts plus the Capitol. The Hunger Games as an annual event held to show the Capitol’s power over the districts in honor of the 13 districts rebellion. The districts have to offer a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to fight to the death, only one out of the 24 children survive. The story is told from the perspective of a 16 year old girl Katniss Everdeen who volunteered for her 12 year old sister. She doesn’t want to, but she knows when the time comes she will kill if she has to. This is a great book, and my favorite series!
