Product description

A fight to the death – on live TV. The game show where you kill or die, and where the winner’s prize is survival.

In District 12, where Katniss Everdeen lives, life is harsh and brutal, ruled from afar by the all-powerful leaders of the Capitol. The climax of each year is the savage Hunger Games – where twelve boys and twelve girls from each District face each other in a murderous showdown. When sixteen-year-old Katniss is chosen to represent her district in the Games, everyone thinks it’s a death sentence. Only one person can survive the horrors of the arena. But plucky Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature… Riveting, grisly and totally compelling, this is a publishing sensation of the most addictive kind.

Winner of the 2010 Red House Book Award.

“The Hunger Games is amazing.” Stephenie Meyer

    Heart-stopping suspense

    The first part to The Hunger Games Trilogy is a fast paced, adventurous and exhilarating read! This is a book you’ll get hooked on from the first page till the end. If you enjoy heart-stopping constant suspense, then this is a must-read for you.

    Horror, drama and romance!

    The Hunger Games Trilogy is an amazing series filled with horror, drama and romance.
    This book is amazing and it is very moving, at one point of it I was brought to tears. It has great description to help you imagine the situation and how the characters feel. There are parts of the book where you can cleary tell what is happening and there are loads of cliff hangers which add great suspense. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading because it is a very fun book to read and when you finish the trilogy you wish that there was more.

    This was the most breathtaking book EVER, and I loved brave Katniss.Although I think this is a book for older readers, young ones that have good reading will enjoy it.

    I hope I can read ‘Catching Fire’ and ‘Mockingjay’ !!!!
