The Hunger Games

Tell Me A Story - Book Review

Author - Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games:
Panem, is a Capitol surrounded by twelve remote districts. The Capitol is demanding and pitiless and keeps the districts in line by compelling each of them to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to play a part in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. 
 Sixteen-year-old Katniss, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, considers it to be a death sentence when she is compelled to represent her district in the Games. However, for Katniss, survival is second nature. Almost without trying, she becomes a front-runner. If she is to win, she will have to make choices that put her survival in balance.

You might find it difficult to put down once started. Characterization is excellent, dialogue believable, and conflict high.
The Hunger Games is absolutely full of tension and ferment. It is a book to that you can't help but get wrapped up with the characters and what is going to happen to them next.

Although by Suzanne Collins is promoted as a book for young adults, it is passionate and violent. Parents should read it to see if it's suitable for children. Mind you, if they can hack it with the Harry Potter series, they should be okay with this.
