The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Book review by Paul

The book I am telling you about is *The Hunger Games*. The main
characters are Katniss and Peeta. It takes place in 12 districts, and
the Capitol (It isn’t considered a district). The time period is in a
future where there is no food. The place on the world is thought to be
in North America. In the book districts 1-12 (not including the
Capitol) are forced to send kids
12-18 to the Capitol to fight. That is so because the districts
rebelled against the Capitol. The Capitol won, and as a punishment for
rebelling the districts send their kids to fight. Katniss’s sister,
Prim, is called to go, but Katniss is in so much shock she volunteers
for her sister. The boy’s are drawn next. A boy, Peeta, that Katniss
knows very little of, is sent with her to fight.

I thought the book was amazing because it has lots of action, fighting,
and adventure, but the book made me feel sad for a long time afterward.
I would the book 100 out of ten not only from all the action, but the
sadness too. My favorite part was when Katniss and Peeta were fighting
to win against Cato, the 6 ft. tall 200 lbs. tribute that trained to
win before he was old enough to enter for the games, and then wolves
walk out, but not just any wolves (real wolves would be considered
easy) the Game Makers made them. They resembled all the dead tributes,
and they bigger than normal wolves. I definitely recommend this book to
classmates, but it is pretty gruesome so you might not want to read it.
