The Hunger Games #1
by Suzanne Collins
In a future North America, where the rulers of Panem maintain control through an annual televised survival competition pitting young people from each of the twelve districts against one another, sixteen-year-old Katniss's skills are put to the test when she voluntarily takes her younger sister's place.
Just right amount of action, violence, political ideas, values and personal strength. What is not to admire in Katniss Everdeen other than being too much of a survivor that she can't see real emotions when you feel it? But who can blame her, she lives in a radical world where the powerful in the Capitol makes human violence a form of entertainment and are twisted in their government.
I feel for Peeta. His feelings is both his strength and his pain. I want to know what will happen to him and Katniss! And what will Gale think of their relationship after everything that happened in the Hunger Games. I hope Katniss will clear her emotions and realize that it's love with Peeta!!!
