As you know I LOVE to read. Mostly horror or paranormal, but a review from Nicole on her blog Pretty Pink Chandelier had me intrigued. So I bought the paperback of The Hunger Games to read on my flight to New Orleans. On my flight back I was stuck in the airport for around 5 hours so I finished it and immediately bought the next one, Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games) to devour. It is truly unlike anything else I have read in awhile and I found that refreshing. No vampires, werewolves or anything else paranormal. Just pure human nature and our will to survive.
“In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlaying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one girl and one boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual 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. But Katniss has also resolved to outwit the creators of the games. To do that she will have to be the last person standing at the end of the deadly ordeal, and that will take every ounce of strength and cunning she has.”
Have you read the series? If so what did you think? I just finished Catching Fire and while it helpd my attetion it wasn’t as captivating as the first one. However, I do want to know what is in store for our heartfelt heroine Katniss.
