Product description

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. Welcome to the deadliest reality TV show ever...

I had high expectations of this book because my friends read it and were delighted but had the opposite effect on me. I wonâ??t say that I hate it but certainly didnâ??t love it.
For me, it could be better written and have a better storyteller. Also, it could be a single book and nobody would have noticed, especially because the characters are not consistent almost to the end of the second book.
Furthermore, I found the film very well designed adaptation and made me completely forget the gaps and errors in the book. To me, itâ??s a recommendation for beginners but if you already enjoy books well written, complicated and not so commercial, THG could be disappointing.
PD. I read it in Spanish, donâ??t know if it makes some difference but I donâ??t plan to give it a chance.

My friend recommended the book to me and said it was really good. So I read it I was instantly hooked in and couldn't stop reading. I could picture the hunger games like I was really standing there in the arena. I loved the suspense and every page was exciting and new. Its one of my favorite books and I would definitely recommend reading it.

I think the Hunger Games will go down as one of those must-read books young people a 100 years from now will be assigned in school. It's more than just an action novel for teens. It has some very serious messages about society and dictatorships and how people treat each other. A real winner all the way round!

After I heard many people talking about it I decided to read the Hunger Games and I was only upset that I didn't read it sooner. It's a journey fulled with action, drama, romance, friendship... Until now, it the best dystopia book I've read!
