    Suzanne Collins' debut novel, Gregor the Overlander, the first book in The Underland Chronicles, received wide praise both in the United States and abroad. The series has been a New York Times bestseller and received numerous accolades. Also a writer for children's television, Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut.
    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

    In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

    New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

      I have read this book as well as many of my friends from book club. We have all just loved it and raved about it to others. I am getting 2 for different family members who love to read. I can definitely see a movie in the making. Its almost as good as the "Twilight" series. There is violence in the book but would still feel it appropriate for young readers. There is some romance but it is kept to a minumum. There is some kissing. I can't wait for the sequel to come!

      This was a great deal on a hardcover and with the other two books in the series, it was by far the best in comparison to this in paperback from a major retail store.

      This book was a amazing! I'm an avid reader. I enjoy everything from the classics to historical non-fiction to fantasy and everything in between! While I love love love reading everything I can get my hands on, it's not often that I will sit down and read a book cover to cover in one sitting... but I did just that with this book! Can't wait to start the second!
