Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Journal Entry 2 by Foxears at Beijing 北京市, Beijing China on Sunday, February 26, 2012
I've heard many friends I know speaking about the Hunger Games. And I knew that a book that is so loved by many people must be worth reading. I can say, it definitely was worth it. This book containes many of the elements that I think a good book should have, among that the new stuff, the things I haven't read about before.

I have to say that I read almost the entire book in one sitting. I started in the evening, reading the first three or four chapters, then as soon as I woke up the next day I continued reading, only pausing around three chapters before the end, somewhere in the evening because I hadn't eaten anything during the whole day and was starving. That's obviously a bonus for the book. And I'm really happy I bought this book for my self as a birthday present!
