Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

...forces. Peeta Mellark and I stand in silence as the train speeds along. The tunnel goes on and on and I think of the tons of rock separating me from the sky, and my chest tightens. I hate being encased in stone this way. It reminds me of the mines and my father, trapped, unable to reach sunlight, buried forever in the darkness. The train finally begins to slow and suddenly bright light floods the compartment. We can...

The Hunger Games
This is an almost perfect adventure novel. With action, adventure, science fiction and romance all in one. The post apocalypse setting and the cruel capitol in the nation of Panem. This is so far one of the best books I've ever read. The Hunger Games is incredible.

On the first page i was sucked into katniss's world. I felt like i was her trough out the entire series. My heart wouldn't stop racing while i rad it. Nobody could get my attention. I cried when Rue diead., then I cried when the people in CATCHING FIRE died, then I cried some when Finnick, Boggs, And Prim died. THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY is an exciting, and amazing series. :) ;)

I couldnt put this book down at all! I read it because I heard it was great and I wanted to read before I go and watch the movie! Now I cant wait!
This book will keep you on your toes for the entire reading. I found myself feeling anxious and excited to find out what will happen.
Its not a love story per se but it sure has that element, which is great.

The Hunger Games Review
Honestly, i never thought i would really get into the book because the movie previews didnt seem all too interesting but i read the first few pages of the book after i watched the movie (speaking of which, i cried through) & i couldnt stop reading.
