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.

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."
