ďIím feeling nauseous and so desperately hoping that itís not me, that itís not me, that itís not me. Effie Trinket crosses back to the podium, smoothes the slip of paper, and reads out the name in a clear voice and itís not me. Itís Primrose Everdeen.Ē

At the beginning of The Hunger Games, Katniss and her sister Prim are entered in what they call a reaping to the Hunger Games. Katniss goes into the games with Peeta Mellark. In the middle someoneís voice booms through the speakers when eight tributes are left saying that two people can win if they are from the same district. So immediately Katniss calls Peetaís name because they were separated early and because they are from the same district. In the end, when there are three tributes left, the rule that two tributes can win is lifted. So Katniss kills Cato, and itís just Katniss and Peeta, so Katniss gives Peeta some poisonous berries and gives herself some and just when they are about to eat them a voice says that two tributes can win again so Peeta and Katniss win.

I liked the whole games part because it was interesting and a lot of action and probably the best part of the book.

I liked this book a lot because itís really interesting and I could not put the book down. If you like action and blood, you would like this book. I would not recommend this book to 8 to 10 year olds because of the topic. I think the characters are believable because in the movie the characters act like its actually happening. I donít think I know anyone like them.

I give this book five stars out of five.
