I can’t believe i didn’t read this book till now!  But finally when I did it I couldn’t put it down. I finished reading entire book in 2 days. I have no words to explain the joy I felt while reading the book. I wish these books were around when I was young.

The book is about a girl, Katniss from district 12, who volunteers to be the contender in the Hunger Games in order to save her little sister. The games are horrible you can call it as  “punishment” set by The Capitol  and is a fight to the death by chosen children from each of the 12 districts. There can be only one survivor, which means either she dies, or she kills 23 other kids. Among these other contenders is Peeta, a boy who Katniss feels soft cornered and feels that she owes a little debt already. Its her fight throughout the book to win and rebel against The Capitol who dont value poor people’s life. In between she is confused about her feelings for Peeta whether its care or love?

I recommend everyone to get a chance to read it becuase its  an absolutely phenomenal novel. I can’t wait to read book two, and find out what happens next. And I cant wait to watch the movie which is going to release this month 23rd, hopefully its going to be as  good as the book.

    I’ve seen the movie trailer but I did not find it engaging. But after reading your review, i guess it’s a fun read thinking that it only takes two days to finish the book 🙂

      Usually I find novels better than movies, but there are some movies I think are as good as novels. I hope this Hunger games movie will not disappoint me, I have lot of expectations for this one. I took only 2 days to read the book becuase I couldn’t put it down. You should give a try its worth reading 🙂
