Hunger Games Trilogy...


“To this day, I can never shake the connection between this boy, Peeta Mellark, and the bread that gave me hope, and the dandelion that reminded me that I was not doomed.”


Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.~~Amazon.com

Review:
I am not a big fan of Science Fiction, so it took some coaxing to get me to finally read Hunger Games, but when I did I read all three. As soon as I finished the third one my youngest daughter and I went to see the movie. She had already seen it, but liked it so much she wanted to see it again. I really liked the first book and enjoyed the second one, but by the time the third one ended I was ready. I'm glad I read them and would recommend them to anyone who hasn't read them yet. The movie was really good and followed the book as close as can be expected. Even though I'm not into Sci-Fi and was getting a little tired of it at the end it was well worth the read. I give it 4 stars for being unique and very entertaining. If you love Science Fiction you'll love Hunger Games, so you might as well get the trilogy.
Happy Reading!!!
