Read it in the bath, hide it under the covers. Stephen King called it “A violent, jarring, speed-rap of a novel that generates nearly constant suspense . . .” Newsweek just described it as – Best. Children’s Book. Ever.
Suzanne Collins’ gripping best seller The Hunger Games tops the Amazon Kindle chart for Christmas. Give it to anyone in your family aged 12 and up and you’re guaranteed not to hear a squeak out of them for the whole holiday.
‘The Hunger Games’ features young heroine Katniss Everdeen.
She is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and sister in the poorest district of Panem, in 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.
Sometimes the terrain, rules, and audience change – but one thing remains the same – you must kill or be killed.
When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go instead of her . . . can she survive?
