The Hunger games original book, was the book that started it all for me in terms of being a huge fan of both the movie series and book series. This book written by Suzanne Collins was written amazingly. The story focused on the districts and the injustice they faced from the powerful Capitol. It had the brilliant idea of showing that all twelve districts would have to send 2 adolescents aged between 12-18 one girl and one boy, it was truly amazing discovering that these tributes would have to fight for their lives during the Games. The story focused on Katniss Everdeen a brave girl from district 12. She was portrayed as a strong character that would do anything to protect her family. It showed how she resented the Capitol for what they did to the districts. Her character is my personal favorite in the franchise. This is due to her being the main character and looking at the book from her conflicted point of view. We get to see her teaming up with fellow district 12 tribute Peeta Mellark. They make a great team initially but we are lead to believe that the two character's will betray one another some time during the games. This is the first book in the trilogy. The book portrays the difficulties of having to provide for your family, for living in a dictatorship government, as well as the struggles in having to kill someone you have known for a long time. If you are interested in fantasy books that leave you wanting to read every single word, than this is the book for you. Suzanne Collins, the author of this book does a wonderful job showing the personality and characteristics of each major character such as Gale, Haymitch, Effie, etc. As someone who has read this book and it's second and third books I recommend you to read all three books in this series. because once you read the first book, you wont be able to wait until you can read the second and last book in this series.
