Summary: (From Goodreads)
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? 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 steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
OMG :O Crazy.. Just finished this book.. Had not forseen that ending coming :O
I was so frustrated while reading this books. Coz you get to attached to all the characters.
And then the whole triangle drama.. :O I almost couldn`t take it.. Coz I love Peeta and his innocence and love for Katniss.. And sometimes I swear out loud, coz she doesn`t deserve him xD haha
But yeah.. Everyone need to read this book.
Really don`t understand how it could take me so long, before I picked it up.. But I will definitely read the third book very soon :)
And if you haven`t already guessed. I give this book 6 out of 6 stars :)
