    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Overall

    The Hunger Games was only okay in my opinion. I found it hard to identify with the main character; she is cold and selfish with few positive traits. The author didn't flush out her character very well, I didn't really feel like I knew her at all and she kept doing things that were contradictory to other aspects of her personality. The other characters were developed even less; the author made little attempt to bring them to life or even give them a back story. They were also not consistent with their character. The story itself was an interesting concept but also hard to buy. I think this author could do with a few courses in psychology and sociology to get a better understanding of how humans work. I really don't feel there is a very good resolution to this book, it just kind of ends. I think the author was hoping to make you want to read her next book by doing this, but it failed to do that for me.
