The Hunger Games - The Hunger Games (Paperback)Suzanne Collins (author)
- 10+ in stock
The brilliantly imagined dystopia that spawned a legion of imitators, Suzanne Collins’ now-iconic YA work is a hard-edged, relentlessly thrilling triumph that continues to hold readers entranced. With stark, profound things to say about media exploitation and teen disaffection, The Hunger Games remains highly relevant and urgent reading.
The first book in the ground-breaking Hunger Games trilogy. Set in a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying reality TV show is taking place. Twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called The Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed.
When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her younger sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.
