Summary Of The Book
As a science fiction series, The Hunger Games trilogy is one of the most popular trilogies in the genre.The trilogy takes place where the whole of North America has turned into one massive nation called Panem. It is written from the point of view of the 16 year old Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is the major protagonist of the trilogy.
In the book, the seat of power in Panem is the Capitol – a highly advanced, fabulously rich city which controls the 12 (formerly 13) districts of the nation. According to the book, the 13 districts had led a revolt against the Capitol which had been put down ruthlessly with the purported destruction of the 13th district. As a deterrent to any future revolts, the Capitol decided that a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 would be sent from each district annually for the so called ‘The Hunger Games’. This is essentially a kind of gladiatorial battle to the death where the winner was given food and supplies and allowed to live. The games were televised and served as a constant reminder that the Capitol would not tolerate insubordination and that it was utterly merciless to any who oppose it.
The books in The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay
The Hunger Games has received consistently positive reviews since the publication of the first book (called The Hunger Games) in 2008.
