Description

The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture!
The astonishing bestseller is now a blockbuster movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover. (Original cover version also available.)

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 is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead 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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Reviews

Praise for The Hunger Games

A violent, jarring, speed-rap of a novel that generates nearly constant suspense. . . . I couldn't stop reading.
--Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

I was so obsessed with this book. . . . The Hunger Games is amazing.
--Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga

Brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced.
--John Green, The New York Times Book Review
