The Hunger Games (Spoiler Alert for first two chapters!)

Standard

Today I started to read a book called The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins.  It is a book about the future.  You probably think that this book takes place with people riding around in hover cars and flying through space to go to the store.  Well this “future” is nothing like that.  This future is more like the past than your idea of the future.  People have to do what they can for food, and that wasn’t very much.  It was illegal to hunt which made it even more difficult.  This story takes place over the ashes of North America, and it is split up into 12 sections called districts.  Well, it was 13 districts, but let’s just say that district, the Capitol didn’t like very much.  The main character is a girl named Katniss, and she lives in District 12.  She lives with her mother and little sister.  I won’t say, er, type, what happened to her dad.  Every person between 12 and 18 years old must compete in the Hunger Games.  This is a fight to the death.  Every year, one girl and one boy from each district are chosen to fight.   Katniss or her sister have never been called, but this time will be different.  Kantniss’s sister is called!  No way is Katniss going to let her sister fight, so she volunteers.  There goes Katniss walking off to her death.  Sadly, that was all I read, so I will blog about it again soon.  Happy reading! ❤
