About this item

The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture!

The astonishing bestseller is now a fantastic movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover. (Original cover version also available.)

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 and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Customer review by camachs13

4.0 stars by camachs13

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a novel written for young adults. I can certainly see why the novel was such a hit. The novel struck many themes like: survival, love, work, poverty and many more. It was easy and quick to read and it was full of action which made the novel so exciting. The constant suspense that goes on in the novel makes the reader to turn page after page. What I liked about the book was that the protagonist was a girl that carried a bow and arrow. I recommend this book to people who have an open mind to what the world could come to. I mean this book really puts one to think on how crazy it'll get if the world were to try surviving in a world like in the Hunger Games. I think that this book should be taught in schools rather than those old boring books that no one really cares about. The Hunger Games will make students enjoy what they are being taught. I say this because its a book that is worth your time. To be honest, ill say that the first two chapters are "boring" (not full of action), but from there on the book keeps on getting better and it causes the reader to keep reading without realizing that one is all into it.
