Panem is surrounded by twelve districts, which the Capitol keeps in line by having each of them send one boy and one girl for the annual Hunger Games. Which all districts fight to the death, until only one is left alive and then is the victor for that year.And for Primrose Everdeen it is her first year. Her sister, Katniss Everdeen, thinks there is no way her sister could be picked. Only a very slim chance and it definitely won't happen. Only, it does happen and right away, Katniss steps up and takes her sister's place for the Hunger Games.I recently watched the movie and liked it. I've also heard so much about the books and many of my friends have recommend them to me, so I decided to give this book a chance. I have to admit that I didn't really like Katniss for about half of the book. She is honestly not the most likeable character. But half way through the book, she does become more likeable and you get to see a different side of her than just being the tough girl. I also really like Rue and Cinna.As for the story, it's interesting and almost unimaginable. It's just really horrible to think any capitol would send children to their death. But overall, I did like the book and I'm going to try to read the next one soon.
