The Hunger Games ebook. A Gripping Tale of Courage and Survival Set Far in the Future.
The Hunger Games ebook tells us the story of a post-apocalytpic world in which the United States of America has morphed into a nation called Panem. It is surrounded by a bunch of 12 loosely aligned territories called districts. Panem is a shining Capitol that rules the 12 districts that surround it using harsh and often heavy handed tactics. The centerpiece of Panem's authority over the 12 surrounding districts are the annual "Hunger Games". It's a death match in which children between the ages of 12 and 18 fight to the death on live television. Each district is forced to nominate one boy and one girl from this age group to contest in the Hunger Games every year.
In the Hunger Games ebook, Suzanne Collins takes us on a wild ride through the darkness that pervades the districts and also through the horrors of Panem's unholy grip on the outlying districts. No review of this book would be complete without mention of the highly authentic descriptions of a bunch of territories set far in the future. The Hunger games ebook transports you into a morbidly fascinating world that is both exhilarating and painful to experience at the same time. The horrors that Panem perpetrates may just about overwhelm the senses, but the triumph of innocence and good over everything else makes this book a great buy.
The Hunger Games ebook is all about the Hunger Games conducted by Panem as a part of their campaign of intimidation of their subjugated districts. The game itself is preceded by a lottery in which one boy and one girl are chosen from every district to take part in the Hunger Games. The unlikely protagonist of this story is Katniss, a 16 year old girl who hails from what was previously 'Appalachia'. She volunteers to enter the Games in order to spare her younger sister Prim after she ends up being selected in the lottery.
The boy chosen to contest in the hunger games along with Katniss is Peeta, a Bakers son who knows nothing about fighting at all. The story soon plunges into how Katniss manages to overcome all her fears to become a cold, calculative fighter with nothing to lose. Her character is contrasted by Peeta who is much more humane and chooses to retain his humanity while going through the horrors of fighting in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games ebook manages to make us question our sub-conscious love of violence. It also highlights the ills of a society that is prey to reality television.
