Description

The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture! The astonishing bestseller is now a fantastic movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover. (Original cover version also available.) In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she 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.

Our customer reviews

Fantastic book, showcasing a creepy version of the future. The story captivates you from the first pages and doesn't let go. However, I must say I don't like the main character, Katniss. Her thoughts, her decisions... She keeps getting everything the wrong way, distrusting everyone. It is somewhat exasperating. But heh, who knows what we'd do in those circumstances. I suppose that's part of the charm of the book. I find myself caring for her and her friends and wishing for everything to turn out well.show more
