Book Review for The Hunger Games book one

Hello once again people who read this blog! So for the last few weeks I've been reading one of the more, um, "popular" books. Can you guess it? Yup, it's the Hunger Games. I'm assuming you know where I'm going with this, the whole "mom wanted me to do a book report on said book" thing. And you'd be correct! So, lets get on with the show. So the book is based sometime in the near future where America is no longer America, it's Panem. And also all the other countries apparently don't exist. The states have now been jumbled up and divided into things called "Districts", 12 each. There used to be 13, but we won't go into that. Every year the leaders/dictators of the country, which don't live in a District, organize an event known as the Hunger Games. They will choose 2 children, ages ranging from 12 to 18, from each District and they will be sent to a massive arena to fight eachother to the death. For the 74th annual Hunger Games, the main character (Katniss Everdeen) gets her younger sister Prim, who's only 12, voted into the Hunger Games. Devastated, Katniss offers to take Prim's place in the Hunger Games. She then steps up onto the stage, and her fellow male tribute Peeta Malarkey steps up to join her. Peeta actually saved Katniss's life years before when they were close to starving and he threw her some bread. For the next few days they spend their time fighting and grieving as they make their way to the Capitol. Once they reach it, they train for several more days to prepare for the Games. Oh yeah, and Katniss shoots an arrow at the judges pig. Good job! However, she surprisingly got a score of 11 despite her aggression. The day of the Games comes along, but if you haven't read the book I'll leave what happens next for you. I personally think it was a great book, however my mother begs to differ. It does have a dark and somewhat disgusting story line, but it's a good read none the less. If I had to pick a favorite character it would probably have to be Peeta, because he's smart and witty. I also felt a lot of pity for him. Poor guy. But all around it's a great book and I highly recommend it. The movie however, don't even bother. Well that's my report on the Hunger Games book 1. If you haven't read it then you really should, you might get a good kick out of it. Either that or you'll hate it. Opinions vary. I will see you all in the next blog post, so goodbye! End
