The Hunger Games


This post is going to be about The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This book is 384 pages long and is intended for ages thirteen and up.

I feel like I cannot give an adequate summary of this book, so here is the summary of the book, courtesy of “In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. 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,” 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 is forced to represent her district in the Games. The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed.”

I felt that this book was very good and it is very empowering. I think the main character Katniss Everdreen is a very good role model for young women, especially girls who are reading this in middle school or high school. She shows girls and young women that they can be brave and that they can stand up for themselves. I would definitely recommend this book for everyone, not just young women. This book is very engaging and it is hard to stop reading as soon as you start reading it.
