By far one of the best books that I have read in a long time. I love the questions that this book raises about humanity and survival, as well as authority. Not only is it impossible to put down, it keeps you thinking for long after you have finished reading it.
This book will rock your socks off, everyone needs to read it.

The future of the United States has been transformed into a world called Panem-a place divided into 12 districts & a capitol. Each year they hold annual Hunger Games in which a boy and girl from each district are forced to compete. In a televised arena each will fight to the death till one remains. When her younger sister is chosen, 16-year-old Katniss volunteers to take her spot knowing it’s a potential death sentence. This is a great read, and keeps you wanting more at the end of each chapter.
Set in an America of the future, the Hunger Games is a strange hybrid of reality tv, cutthroat lifestyles, and the classic good vs. evil drama. I literally could NOT put this book down! One of my favorite books of all time!
