Hunger Games

So I am behind on the times with this one I think, but just started the trilogy The Hunger Games last Sunday and I am already on the third book!


These books are seriously so good! Around 270 pages, easy to read, and a perfect escape from the real world if that’s what you’re looking for.

The books are narrated by a 16 year old named Katniss that lives in a country called Panem. Panem at one point was North America, but there seems to have been some kind of apocalyptic event that demolished it. There’s The Capitol and its now 12 Districts. There had been a rebellion at some point in history and now The Capitol hosts the Hunger Games every year to punish the people of the Districts for their rebellion and remind them of the Capitol’s power. Each district has to send a boy and girl to participate in the Games in which they all fight to the death until only one remains.

There’s a movie of it coming out in 2012, but the books are definitely worth reading.

Has anyone else read this addicting trilogy? What did you think?

  1. I'm currently on the first one. I only read about 4 pages a night after studying all day but I love them. I am at the Games in the first one.
    I'm excited to see the movie since it was filmed in NC!
