“The Hunger Games” is a series by Suzanne Collins. In place once known as North America, now known as Panem, there is a very rich city surrounded by twelve districts. Every year there is the annual Hunger Games where a boy and a girl from ages 12 to 18, from each district fight in a broadcasted competition where they fight to the death. Katniss is the main character at age 16. Her 12 year old sister Prim was picked to be in the Hunger Games, and Katniss volunteered as tribute to take Prim’s place.
I read about 3/4 of this book and I didn’t enjoy it. A lot of people enjoy this series, but I couldn’t get myself to enjoy it. I didn’t end up finishing it because I took an interest in a few other books. I rate this book 2 stars. I don’t recommend this book.
