Okay, though I just saw the movie yesterday, I read the first book a year and four months ago. I like the book better than the movie, possible because I read it first. Overall, I enjoyed both of them and look forward to read/seeing the rest.

The Hunger Games

by c1c1b3an (WorldCat user published 2010-07-22) Excellent Permalink

THE HUNGER GAMES is the best book I have read in a long time. People who are hesitant to read this- (like I was) do not fear. THE HUNGER GAMES will make many people with various tastes satisfied. Suzanne Collins has truly struck gold on this series.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death -- televised for all of Panem to see. Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love. - Publisher."@en ;
