Some of the worst parts of the Hunger Games is watching the other tributes die, being put in the position of killing them, not knowing how you can survive and the Capitol doing all they can to make sure everyone dies but one.
Do Katniss and Peete live? Who is the survivor of the Hunger Games? Is Peete and Katniss's plan of being madly in love enough to keep them alive?
I loved the Hunger Games. It was amazing. I loved the great details, and the whole story line. The Hunger Games is one of the most addicting (in a good way) series I have ever read. I recommend this book for children 12 and up who enjoy action and slight romance. This is a fabulous book worth reading.
"may the odds be in your favor"
well I have to go read the 2nd book in the series
