About this item

Now in paperback, the book no one can stop talking about...

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead (cont'd)

Customer review by Ritz

5.0 stars by Ritz

Not only did this product arrive in great condition but it was in record speed that it was received. The book itself is very intriguing and entertaining. I got this book for my daughter's summer reading. She loved it so much, she asked that I get the sequel (which I did). I started reading it (since she had a great review of it), that I find myself reading the book every chance I get! Awesome!

  • I would not want my child to read it. It's got some complicated sub-plots and is violant and scary. I think the average child would have nightmares. However, although it's violant, it's not always very graphic, which is a good thing. I'd recommend it for young adults. I'm 52 years old and I loved it. So "big people" like it too.

  • Hi ciscoj, I am 25, and I thouroughly enjoyed this book. The book is written from the point of view of a 17 year old girl, but the content and such kept my attention. It was hard to put this book down, lol. Hope this helps. :)

  • I am 34 years old and I loved the book. It is action packed, filled with suspense, and even includes a love story. The main character is a sixteen year old girl; however, she is wise beyond her years. I highly recommend this book for adults and teenagers. I would not recommend it for children under 13 due to the graphic nature of the violence depicted in the "Games". If you begin reading this, I must warn you that you will not be able to put the book down. :-) Happy reading!

  • I say this book is NOT for children. Even though it is a book, it is VERY violent at times. It is also quite lovey, dovey at times and younger readers wouldnt understand. I would reccommend this for teens and older. DEFINITELY ADULTS CAN ENJOY THIS BOOK!

  • I do not recommend that young children read this at all. For adults I think it is a must read. After you read it then you can decide if it is appropriate for your child depending on their age.
