Book Review: Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - Reviewed by (22 Mar 2012)

This is the first book in the Hunger Games series, a series of trust, loyalty, desperation, need, pain, hope, love and death.

In the far future the world has changed vastly and terribly- the northern United States have divided into fourteen individual parts- districts 1-13 (though thirteen is no longer inhabited) and the Capitol. Each year one man and woman from each district between the ages of 12 and 18 are randomly selected to fight in an arena, fight to the death, to repay the Capitol for an uprising years in the past. It is now the 74th annual Hunger Games. And this year, we are welcome to watch.

The Hunger Games is a series out of this world- I can't imagine any other book ever reading the same as this did for me; it is unspeakable in it's majesty and for me absolutely cannot be beaten. It is the best YA dystopian I have ever read and it simply is fantastic. Other worldly fantastic. Amazing. Heartbreaking. Exceptional. Scary. Terrific. Devistating. And brilliant.
