The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins
Katniss' dare-devil attitude attracted me from the start when she broke all the rules with her best friend Gale. I love how the book takes place in the future and uses a strict social class system to distinguish the different districts. Suzanne brilliantly takes you inside each district to see just how the people of Panem live life. The main focus is on District twelve, where Katniss lives. The details provided especially in the game itself gives a full visual representation and will leave you on the edge of your seat. Who will win the games? What happens to Katniss' family? How does the city of Panem view Katniss?
I must say in the end I was a bit crestfallen when I had completed the novel, however I was still exhilarated and ready to jump right into the next book of the series. The Hunger Games is one of those novels you will read over and over again and still fall in love everytime.
Sometimes a little good luck can be the difference between life and death.
Hope is what keeps us alive and thriving. Without it, we wouldn't have anything to help us grow and take chances.
An important theme from Peeta is that you should always cherish ever little moment as if it was your last.
