I am absolutely in love with this book. I couldn't put it down. I actually read this one with my boyfriend and loved every minute of it.
This book is the first of three that complete this series. It introduces a girl named Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a world not like ours. It is a world that is sectioned off into different zones. The main power is the Capital, a place where the main government is in charge and reigns over everyone.
Once a year they hold a event where the Capital chooses one boy and one girl from each of these districts to actually fight to the death. They have these 'Games' to demonstrate the Capital's power over each and everyone of them even their children.
Katniss is the girl that volunteers to be District 12's chosen girl, she volunteered after her little sisters name was called. I loved this part of the book, I dont want to give it away really, so you will have to read it, but it shows just how much she loves her sister and the bond between siblings.
All through the book we get to follow Katniss journey to the capital and her journey through the games. Will she be the last one standing or will she die a death that is televised through out the districts?
We also get to meet a boy from District 12 named Peeta Mellark who could be an ally
I love the suspense this book creates. If you haven't read this amazing book I implore you pick up a copy and start it today, you wont be disappointed trust me.
Like I said this is the first book of three. The Hunger Games,Catching Fire, and MockingJay is the books to read right away.
When I wake up, the other side of the bed is cold. My fingers stretch out, seeking Prim's warmth but finding only the rough canvas cover of the mattress. She must have had bad dreams and climbed in with our mother. Of course, she did. This is the day of the reaping.
