In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.
OMH is this book good. It is geared for young adults, but the writing is superb. And considering how skinny it is sitting next to Echo, Twilight or Host... it lacks nothing. It didn't feel rushed, cut off or choppy.
I can't wait to get my grubby paws on the next book Catching Fire.
