My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GREAT book- reading it felt like watching some sort of morbid reality tv show. Imagine a cross between A Brave New World, Lord of the Flies, and the tv show Survivor. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world divided into twelve districts. Each of the twelve districts must deliver two children to fight to the death in a horrific battle they call the Hunger Games. The children from each district are left in a huge arena controlled by The Gamemakers (the whole battle is televised for the world to see) and must take each other out one by one. The winner... lives.
Lucky for me, this one has a sequel. Onward!
