The Lovereading4Kids comment
The astonishing bestseller is now a fantastic movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover.
The Hunger Games is a searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present. In a dark vision of the near future, The Hunger Games is set in the ruins of a place once known as North America. The cruel Capitol keeps order in its twelve outlying districts by forcing them each to send one boy and girl to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a terrifying reality TV show broadcasting a live fight to the death. Without really meaning to, 16 year old Katniss becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Welcome to the deadliest reality TV show ever.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Hunger Games Lovereading4kids member Amrit Bunet, age 14 was invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'This roaring tale filled with love, action and darkness is one that has constant suspense. From start to finish you will not be able to put this book down.'

The Hunger Games (Film Tie-In Edition) by Suzanne Collins
Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. But Katniss has been close to death before - and survival, for her, is second nature. The Hunger Games is a searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.
Below is a review written by Amrit Bunet, age 14.
This roaring tale filled with love, action and darkness is one that has constant suspense. From start to finish you will not be able to put this book down.
Suzanne Collins has written this amazing story in a unique way making sure that you won't be able to take your eyes off this novel for a moment.
Katniss is a simple girl providing food for her family after her father died, but she sees death before her when she is thrown into the arena to face the terrifying HUNGER GAMES. By making a promise to her little sister to return home she sees herself falling in love with her opponent, one that either she will have to kill or be killed by him.
But wait...once reaching the ending of the book that leaves you on edge there are two more books to go. Yes! The Hunger Games is part of an amazing trilogy that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Suzanne Collins is an amazing author and writer; she has a writing technique that makes one feel that they are part of the Hunger Games. When finishing this book you would have been Katniss fighting for your life against your opponents. It's now up to you. "May the odds be ever in your favour."
