The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

If I have only one word to describe this book, it would be riveting. I was literally unable to get up and put down the book even to go to the loo. And I was at work too! I have my copy of the book for a month now before I opened it for lack of something to read and I was hooked from start to finish. It was good! And since it was a trilogy, I spent most of may waking hours these past few day reading the book.

The Hunger games are a game of survival. The Capitol, or the seat of the government chooses two champions from each District (district 1-12) to fight to death as a reminder of what happens to those who wish to rebel against them. Katniss was not chosen during the Reaping but she volunteered for her sister Prim. The other champion was Peeta, a son of a bakery owner. And you have to read the book to find out how it turned out. Let's just say that I loved the book I wasnt able to tear myself away from it long enough to eat!

The other two books are Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
