Hunger Games

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Summery:After many wars and natural disasters what is left of North America is The Capitol and 13 districts.When the 13th District rebelled it was destroyed.To remind the other districts who is in charge, the government holds a game with two tributes from each districts.Katniss lives in District 12.When her little sister is drawn to go into the bloody,deadly game she takes her place.With a boy, Peeta, who may be a friend or an enemy(either way he will most likely end up dead) she is going to do her best to stay alive.

Romance:Some kissing,One longer scene were it implies(no description) that Katniss and Peeta kinda kissed more and deeper.A couple of hugs.Talk about loving/liking/caring fro someone...or maybe caring/liking/loving someone.
Bad Romance:They(Katniss and Peeta) slept together in a sleeping bag for warmth.


Violence:The whole games are a survival so 22 people die.Some are gory deaths.They mutated some wolves and it seemed like it was the dead tributes.Hunting.Some bad injuries(spoiler!)Peeta loses a leg.
Yelling,arguing.Almost starving.

Other:Drinking, Katniss's stylists saw her naked.(She was mentioned to be uncomfortable though.)Also mention of the tributes before them having to go into the showing where the tributes dress for their District naked.

Time Period:Our future.

What I Thought:Well the first time I read it, I read it really quick, a couple hours.Then I read the next two which weren't as good.Darker and a bit confusing and boring for Mocking Jay.catching Fire was O.K.I just didn't like it I guess.It was a bit dark.So I disliked this one because of that.It is a good book and I would reread it.It is well written and very exciting.There are a few little things that I don't like but other than that and the violence  it is an all around pretty good.

Rating & Age:5 stars.13 up.
