Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

From Goodreads:

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

The Hunger Games is my favorite book in the entire world! If  I could give this book 1 million hearts I would, but i would NOT want to live in The Hunger Games. Basically, every year one boy and one girl are picked from each district (1-12) to fight to the death in the annual Hunger Games.

You may be thinking it was set in the past. WRONG! It is in the future. The characters in the book are, Katniss, Prim, Gale, Peeta, and whole bunch more that I don't feel like naming. I give this book:
