The first in Suzanne Collins’ world-renowned young adult series.
“I realize, for the first time, how very lonely I’ve been in the arena. How comforting the presence of another human being can be.”
In a dystopian North America, there lies a nation - Panem - split into twelve districts with a central Capitol, which exploits them not just for natural resources and labor, but for entertainment. The 74th Hunger Games are upon them, which means it’s time for each district to send “tributes”, one boy and one girl between ages twelve and eighteen, to brawl in a broadcasted blood bath. Drawn by lottery, the tributes are forced to fight to the death…but sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen of District 12 wasn’t chosen - she volunteered.
Taking her little sister’s place in the Games, Katniss is thrust into a surreal, literal life-and-death situation. Already equipped with hunting and survival skills, Katniss soon becomes a contender without meaning to, catapulting her to near-celebrity status. As bonds are formed and lives lost around her, Katniss is forced to grapple with not just surviving the Hunger Games, but the cruel and oppressive society that continues to enforce them.
