The Hunger Games is the first book in a series of three. This book is full of adventure, constantly throwing curveballs that leave you wondering what will happen next. The heroine has a strong protective instinct for her friends and family, which leads her into a dangerous situation where to survive, she must kill. Though slow-paced and predictable at times, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For those who want a little excitement in their reading, I would recommend this book.
