About: The Hunger Games is the 1st book in the bestselling young adult trilogy. You can even see the film in the cinema right now! It was suggested that we compare book and movie on the night so by all means check out either/both.
Set in a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying reality TV show is taking place. Twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called The Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed. When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdee steps forward to take her younger sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.http://www.thehungergames.co.uk/
