Product Description

The TV game show only has one rule: kill or be killed. Katniss must play or die. But she won’t give up without a fight…

In District 12, where Katniss Everdeen lives, life is harsh and brutal, ruled from afar by the all-powerful leaders of the Capitol. The climax of each year is the savage Hunger Games – where twelve boys and twelve girls from each District must fight to the death on live TV in a murderous showdown. When sixteen-year-old Katniss steps forward to take her younger sister’s place in the Games, everyone regards it as a death sentence. Only one person can survive the horrors of the arena. But plucky Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature… Riveting, grisly and totally compelling, this is a publishing sensation of the most addictive kind.

Winner of the 2010 Red House Book Award.

“The Hunger Games is amazing.” Stephenie Meyer

Bestselling author Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle grade readers. Her debut for readers aged 12 and up, The Hunger Games immediately became a New York Times bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It was called “addictive” by Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly, and “amazing” by Stephenie Meyer on her website, and was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2008 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice.

Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy, debuted at #1 on the USA Today bestseller list and simultaneously appeared at #1 on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. It was named a Time Magazine Top Ten Fiction Book of 2009, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, and a People Magazine (Top 10)Best Book of 2009. Mockingjay, the thrilling final installment in trilogy, was published to worldwide acclaim in 2010.

Foreign rights for The Hunger Games and its sequels have been sold in over 39 countries to date. In April 2010, Suzanne Collins was named to the TIME 100 list of “the world’s most influential people.” Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games movie in March 2012, with Oscar-nominated Jennifer Lawrence starring as Katniss.

Suzanne has also had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains It All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writers Guild of America nomination in animation for co-writing the critically acclaimed Santa, Baby!

Suzanne Collins lives with her family in Connecticut.

    Horror, drama and romance!

    The Hunger Games Trilogy is an amazing series filled with horror, drama and romance. This book is amazing and it is very moving, at one point of it I was brought to tears. It has great description to help you imagine the situation and how the characters feel. There are parts of the book where you can cleary tell what is happening and there are loads of cliff hangers which add great suspense. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading because it is a very fun book to read and when you finish the trilogy you wish that there was more.

    This was the most breathtaking book EVER, and I loved brave Katniss.Although I think this is a book for older readers, young ones that have good reading will enjoy it.

    I hope I can read ‘Catching Fire’ and ‘Mockingjay’ !!!!
