This is an epic adventure Sci-Fi series that I am absolutely fond of. I started reading this way back during my college days and was totally thrilled to learn that they are adapting it to a film, which too was very entertaining.
The story revolves around the series' rebel heroine, Katniss Everdeen, who lives in the post-apocalyptic nation of Panem, formerly known as North America. In Panem, the “Hunger Games” are an annual event in which young boys and girls fight to death in a televised battle.
This nation consist of a wealthy capitol controlling and dominating 12 other districts and it conducts this event as a punishment for the past rebellion, during which District 13 was destroyed. It selects a boy and a girl each, from the remaining districts through a lottery system and those who are picked must fight to death in a man-made open arena, until one person survives, who will be declared as the winner and be showered with riches. So, basically, the novel deals with the struggle for self-preservation that the poor people of Panem face in their districts and the Hunger Games in which they must participate.
You will find this book exceptionally exciting and brutally entertaining to read. It consists blood baths, lovers’ quarrels, sacrifices and rebellious game contenders, which is going to keep you way past your bedtime. Trust Me!
You all must have heard many a times, that books are always better to read than watching their corresponding films. However, I am totally gonna disagree with this belief, with respect to this particular book, because they could not have made the film better than it already is. They have totally justified the characters. I mean, who else could have played this role better than Jennifer Lawrence. They have showed each and every incident, character and places of this book in the most appropriate way possible. Especially the arena, which was superbly reincarnated in the movie; it was like reading it all over again.
I personally would like to endorse this book to all the book lovers who likes adventure, action and emotion all at the same time, with a classic sense of entertainment. And I am certainly going to bring the review on its sequel as well. Keep watching this BlogSpace for more.
