Hunger Games – Katniss goes on a legendary journey

hunger gamesTitle/Author: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Summary:  In a futuristic depiction of North America, the capital Panem keeps control of its 12 districts by making them pick a boy and girl Tribute between 12 and 18 to fight to the death in an arena on national television. The main character Katniss Everdeen is conflicted between the urge to survive and her unexpected love in this stimulating dystopian novel.

Six Word Review: Katniss goes on a legendary journey.

This book reminded me of the book Divergent because of the central dystopian theme and the emphasis on action and fighting.

I would give this book 8/10 stars because of how well the author set up and conceptualized the story and the fact that the book was very compelling and hard to put down.

What I loved about this book is how well-developed the characters were because it made it so that you feel like you know them by the middle of the novel.

If Katniss was stuck on a deserted island she would: build a boat and get away because she is an innovative person.

 I started reading this book because it was given to me by my middle school as a prize …and I kept reading: it because it was such a good story.
