The Hunger Games

Wow I really enjoyed reading "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins and I am looking forward to getting started with the sequels "Catching Fire" and "MockingJay".  This book is written for young adults but I often find that those are some of the best books.  Very well written and keeps you interested. 

This book is about North American Nation that is not like we know it today.  There has been rebellion and war.  Now the countryside is divided into 12 districts and the Capital has all control.  The Capitol is harsh and every year they pick one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 -18 from each district to come and fight to the death.  There can only be one survivor and that survivor will provide food and other necessities to their district by winning.  Sixteen year old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her sisters place.  And she must now fight for survival.

I loved the theme of this book and the whole what would you do if it was you.  Can good overcome evil?  Very good read.  So take some time to relax with a nice cold glass of lemonade and read away.
