The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

(5 Stars)


Katniss' selflessness and willingness to give her life for others along with her morals/ethics make her the perfect heroine.  Katniss' tales describing her friendship with Gale and their likenesses means there is no way to ignore the strength of their bond and makes you wonder if she unknowingly loves him.  Peeta's tender show of unrequited love makes the reader's heart squeeze, and they cheer for him as emphatically as they pull for Katniss to be the winner of the Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games and the Capital and the Districts.  The world which was created within the covers of this book is very real, making this unbelievable story suddenly plausible and horrific.   

I would highly recommend this book for people of all ages.  In fact, I'm dying to tackle Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2), which will be one of my next books.  Stayed tuned for that review.
