The Hunger Games Trilogy, Suzanne Collins, loved by Aaina Siddique
The Hunger Games is a sci-fi young adult trilogy about a sixteen year old girl named Katniss, and what she experienced during the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is when one tribute from each district aged 12-18 is decided on and they have to fight to the death in an arena. Her adventure started when at the reaping, her sister’s name was called out to be the female tribute of the 74th annual Hunger Games from District 12. Katniss loves her sister, Prim, very much and will do anything to put her out of danger, so she volunteered as tribute. The male tribute was Peeta Mellark, who is the same age as Katniss.
The book was set in District 12, the poorest district in Panem, where they have almost no food, and people are starving to death. For food, Katniss goes hunting with her best friend, Gale, and brings back game for her family or sells it at the black market.
What I liked about the book was that when I first read the blurb, I thought the genre would be action, which it was, but it was a lot more than that. It had included such genres as sci-fi and romance, which attracted more readers with different tastes in books. My favourite part in the book was when Katniss tried to do everything possible to try and save Peeta after it was announced that if two people from the same district survived, they can win the Hunger Games.
I think The Hunger Games trilogy is a very enjoyable series and I would recommend it for people who are looking for a good read. I was hooked into the plot right after reading the first page.
