Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Title: Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Series: The Hunger Game Series #1
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Hardcover: 374
Publication Date: October 31st 2008
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Hunger game series by Suzanne Collins are fascinating yet compelling books. I call it “Gladiator meets Lost”. These books keep you guessing and wondering what’s next! Lying in bed awake at night thinking about these books isn’t too far from the mix! (These books are that great)!
It introduces sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem.  Panem is where a controlling government working in a central city called the Capitol holds supremacy. The story takes place in a future time period after the ruin of North America, in a nation known as Panem. Panem consists of an affluent Capitol and 12 surrounding, shoddier districts. As a reminder and punishment for a prior rebellion against the Capitol, every year one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are chosen randomly and ordered to partake in the Hunger Games, which is a televised event where the "tributes", must fight to the death in a dodgy outside showground until only one remains. 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose.  (Prim) Peeta Mellark, a boy whom Katniss knew- who once saved Katniss's life is also participating from District 12 A Must Read!

North America as we know it has changed immensely. Or has it…War continues, our young are sacrificed, and blood shed is celebrated like the gladiators at a fight in the arena. There are twelve districts all lead by the Capitol. Each district is responsible for producing a main mineral or raw material for the capitol to continue their lavish living. Every year each district must send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to submit to - The Hunger Games- a game where only ne will survive. We follow a girl Katniss, who makes the ultimate sacrifice, for her sister. The ultimate sacrifice she makes, starts a great change of events which could lead to a possible revolution…
With that she encounters a new word where savagery, brutality and ultimate barbarity are the only ways to survive. Katniss is forced to compete in a game where survival of the fitess applies. She finds herself with Peeta another youth from her district as well as 22 other youths in a tournament where they are placed in a setting until only one of them survives. The creators of the game also known as the Capitol controls many of the elements of this game and as the batle has started they manipulate everything from the weather to daylight, pushing the candidates closer to eliminating each other. When it seems like all hope is lost the Capitol raises the stakes of the game for our district twelve youths. Can they make it? It is up to Katniss with the world watching.
This book keeps you in the edge. You can’t put it down once you start.


Title: Catching fire
Author: Suzanne Collins
Series:  The Hunger Game Series #2
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Hardcover: 391
Publication Date: September 1st 2009
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol. Catching Fire maintains the adrenaline rush of Suzanne Collins's series launch
Catching Fire is the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. As the continuation to The Hunger Games, it continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and the illusory, futuristic nation of Panem. “Catnip” thought her time in the capitol was only a speck in her past. She was trying to move forward BUT, Much to her astonishment, Katniss has caused a rebellion!  Due to the stunt she pulled to save her and Peeta
Worst, President Creep… Ahh Snow!  Wants Katniss on a platter (and NOT in a good way!) …  It’s not a paranormal romance and it is Intense.  A great read Indeed! OH!  By the gods… The cliffhanger at the end of this book was totally atrocious! Wicked I tell ya!- I wonder what Suzanne  Collins was thinking when she left us hanging… I definitely loved this book! I couldn’t wait to start on MockingJay… the third and final book in the series. (Which I did right away!)

Catching Fire is a great follow up to the hunger games. After winning the first hunger games Katniss makes an enemy out of President Snow. She also finds herself torn between the affections of Gayle and Peeta.
President Snow is determined to have his revenge, while Katniss has no choice but to take part in yet again another set of Hunger Games. Will she make it? More secrets revealed, new alliances made,the plot thickens and not everyone in the Capitol isn't whom they appear to be.

Title: MockingJay
Author: Suzanne Collins
Series:  The Hunger Game Series #3
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Hardcover: 390
Publication Date: August 24th 2010
My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains--except Katniss.The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost.
Mockingjay is the third and final installment of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Basically, following her rescue by rebels, Katniss halfhearted agrees to become "the Mockingjay", a symbol of the rebellion against the Capitol.  In the book, Katniss must deal with treachery and brutality against people. At the same time she was inspiring HOPE in the upcoming war.  Finally, Katniss realizes she wasn’t only the symbol of hope, but also a PAWN in an age-old power struggle between President Snow and the leader of district 13 (Coin)!
Mockingjay didn’t have a faery tale ending, but it was an ending all the same. Beautifully written, a great read! Powerful ending
So sad not quite hat I expected..It is done. NOT THE BEST OF THE THREE... a lot of action... So Katniss is the girl on fire, district 13 is not destroyed and Peeta is gone…
Mocking Jay is the third and final book the compelling Hunger Game series. Katniss is now the face of the revolution, which pretty much started from the moment she took her sister’s place.
War is – now. Apart from the other books this one is more—War is at every corner. Be prepared with your tissue because there were many sad moments. I do not feel as strongly for this book as I did for the other two. In some sense feels a bit rushed at the end and some parts in the middle. Overall it was a great trilogy.  Some light to shard, that no matter what, human nature is such a fickle thing, and no one man is he cause or blame for humanities suffering. When one is stopped another shall follow.  

Books are the future of movies…
