The Hunger Games follows the main protagonist Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is a sixteen-year old girl, living in District 12 in Panem. Each year, a girl and boy are taken from each district to fight in the Hunger Games. However, one day Katniss’s sister is chosen and without much thought Katniss volunteers herself instead. The Hunger Games to Katniss is a death sentence because she must kill the rest of the competitors to be the ultimate winner and that seems unlikely.

This book was a rollercoaster of emotions. There wasn’t any point where it dragged and I couldn’t put it down. My favorite

Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins, is the final novel in The Hunger Games trilogy. After being rescued from the Quarter Quell, Katniss must adapt to life in District Thirteen while mourning the loss of Peeta. Katniss, forced to be the face of a revolution that she does not lead, suddenly finds herself in the middle of political chaos as the rebels of District Thirteen aim to overthrow the Capitol.

This book was great in some places but boring in others; while it was filled with twists  and turns, especially near the end, it was pretty slow in the middle. I enjoyed how Collins chose to end her

As things become tenser, the existing love triangle becomes more apparent. Peeta and Katniss are barely acquaintances, but they must play the part of the "star-crossed lovers" if they want to save themselves and everyone that they love from President Snow's wrath. This book was excellent; every good thing

Suzanne Collins’ YA dystopian novel, The Hunger Games, is absolutely perfect. Panem, future ruins of North America, is ruled by the rich in the Capitol and split into twelve districts. Each year, two tributes of ages ranging from twelve to eighteen years old, from each district are forced to compete in a deadly competition known as the Hunger Games.

The main character, Katniss, was amazing; she was unique in a way that made her more tangible, but not unlikable. Collins’ whole world was utterly astounding, and the premise of the games and the points she made about society were phenomenal. I

She, along with a boy Peeta whom she kind of knows, is selected to compete in the Hunger Games, a life-or-death battle between twenty-three other teenagers where only one can survive. Katniss must balance surviving the Games and determining the seemingly endless limits of the Capitol’s cruelty, all while maintaining a relationship with Peeta that may or may not even exist.

There are many things I loved about the book. It offers
