So I finally gave in and decided to read The Hunger Games. Of course it`s been on my to read pile for ever, I just didn`t know if I wanted to read it and ruin the magical image that I had created in my mind from all the hype I had been hearing. Thankfully, I was not disappointed with this book. Of course, I had a general idea of what was supposed to happen and what was involved, but never could my imagination go where this book went.
The Hunger Games is set in a post apocalyptic North America where the US has been divided into 13 districts ruled by The Capitol. As a constant reminder of their failed uprising against the Capitol, every year the districts send one boy and one girl to participate in The Hunger Games where there will be only one victor, but it seems this year the rules are going to change.
Katniss and Peeta are quiet the odd pair to say the least. One a miner`s daughter and the other a baker`s son, living in different parts of District 12. When they are thrown together after the reaping to prepare for their life or death competition, an unlikely bond begins to grow. I found myself rooting more and more for the two of them to become closer the more the book went along, but if you are familiar with the series at all I`m sure you would expect that.
As the competition rages on and people`s lives are lost I found myself growing a bit more and more connected to the characters that were slowly surviving. The crazy twists and turns in the book kept me reading well into the night. Once you pick this book up you are not going to want to put it down. I know my next trip to the bookstore will have to include Catching Fire, I am just dying to know what happens back in the Districs after The Hunger Games have concluded.
