Have you ever read a book so good that you can actually feel a chill went up and down your spine? Goosebumps even? Yeah..that's what happen to me to quite recently when I read the Hunger Games. It's so faced past and full of action that I just cannot put it down and have to finish it in less than one day.
It's the story set in a distant future in North America where a nation called Panem controlled by the Capitol forced every district to nominate a boy and a girl every year to participate in the hunger games. This Hunger Games is sort of like Survivor with a twist, the winner is the last remaining person in the game which means all the others must be dead or killed. Wow! It's so violent that sometimes I wonder how it could pass off as a YA book in the US. Our protagonist is 16 year old Katniss Everdeen who's from District 12- the poorest district in Panem. She volunteered to take her sister's place when she was choosen to be in the game.
She's feisty and have been providing for her family since her father died by hunting wild animals in the woods outside her district. As a survivor, you have an inkling she would eventually win the game but so many twists and turns happened and even an unexpected romance that what makes me hooked.
No wonder they're turning it into a movie. It's that great! With three books in all, the series is really fantastically violent but amazing! The first book is the best, the second is okay but the third is so cringe worthy violent. Forget Twilight, this is one series that everyone should look out for!
