In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, “The 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 is forced to represent her district in the Games. The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed.
Reviews by Mocha Girl Book Bloggers
Mocha Girl Tia’s Review: I really liked this book. It was unlike any other book I have read before. It kept me entertained the whole way through. I look forward to reading Catching Fire.
Mocha Girl Shannon’s Review: There was so much hype surrounding the recommendation of this book that I feared it would be a big disappointment. How wrong I was! It may not be the most original idea, but it was an extremely refreshing read and incredibly well-written. I especially liked how the story ended, with loose ends still trailing along behind it instead of everything being all tied up nice and neat. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end and am looking forward to the second installment.
Mocha Girl Rochelle’s Review: Good Morning Mocha Girls and Happy Monday just finished the book, this book kept me on the edge of my sit, it kept me intrigued and anxious to get to the end and then there is the end, (don’t want to spoil the end for those that have not finished,) overall good book.
