Book Review #1: The Hunger Games

I am going to make a review of one of my favourite books: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Well, it is not a new released book, actually it was released in 2008, 3 years ago. But I just bought it few months ago. Quiet late, isn’t it? Hahahaha.

A 16 years old girl named Katniss Everdeen lives with his mother and sister in the poorest district in the country of Panem, District 12, with Capitol as its capital. There used to be 13 districts, but the 13th district is gone when a rebellion against Capitol happened.

Every year, Capitol held a TV show called The Hunger Games. It is a ‘game’ with 24 participants of 12-18 years old boys and girls, and each district has to send one boy and one girl. Only one person could be alive.

Katniss volunteers for the 74th games replaces her younger sister, Primrose Everdeen. With Peeta Mellark from the same district, they go to Capitol where the start point is. There, they meet Haymitch as their mentor, Cinna, Effie Trinket, Avox girl, and many more.

In the arena, they find it difficult to trust anyone, even your partner from the same district. They kill each other to be the only winner and stay alive. They are fighting against death.

That was a very short review of The Hunger Games, and the most exciting parts are not there. I must say, The Hunger Games is a trilogy, the second book titled Catching Fire and the last is Mockingjay. I haven’t read both, but I have to read it soon.
You must read it! I’m sure you will not be disappointed 🙂
