The Hunger Games TrilogyPros: It's action packed, never a dull moment. Keeps you on your toes and may make you gasp aloud. There's love intertwined with all of this (a love triangle, that is.) It's futuristic, which I was skeptical about, but completely changed my mind after reading it.
Cons: There's more than enough death.
REVIEW: Life in District 12 isn’t easy for Katniss and her family. Ever since her father died the girl has spent her time saving her mother and little sister Prim from starvation by hunting on forbidden land. But worst of all is reaping day. Once a year the government chooses two children (Ages 12-19 I believe) from each of the twelve districts to compete against one another in a live and televised reality show. Twenty-four total enter the competition, and only one survives. When Prim's name is called, Katniss immediatly changes places with her without hesitation to compete alongside the baker’s boy Peeta. To survive in this game you need to win the heart of your audience, and so District 12’s trainers come up with a plan. The plan involves twisted love in a do or die game! But in a game where only one person can live, Katniss will have to use all her brains, wits, and instincts to determine who to trust and how to outwit the game's creators.
