Just finished with the last page of the book “mockinjay” – the last one of the hunger games triology , by Suzanne Collins. Well at first i thought it was going to be another one of the novels about love where the girl was torn between two guys who loved her but she can’t decide whom to choose. But its completely a different experience to read the book. It is packed with all the stuff required to get you hooked ( so hooked that i finished the 3 books in almost 4 days ). There is love , war , opression , calculations , the dark schemes in politics , and most important of all one’s instinct to stay alive.
Heres a brief overview (from wiki of couse):
“The Hunger Games trilogy takes place in an unidentified future time period after the destruction of the current nations of North America, in a totalitarian nation known as “Panem”. Panem consists of a hugely rich Capitol, located in what used to be the Rocky Mountains, and twelve (formerly thirteen) surrounding, poorer districts which are under the hegemony of the Capitol.
The Capitol is lavishly rich and technologically futuristic, but the twelve Districts are in varying states of poverty – the trilogy’s narrator and protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, lives in the poorest District 12, formerly Appalachia, where people regularly die of starvation. As punishment for a rebellion generations previous against the Capitol wherein twelve of the districts were defeated and the thirteenth destroyed, every year one boy and one girl from each of the remaining twelve districts, between the ages of twelve and eighteen, are selected by lottery and forced to participate in the “Hunger Games”. The Games are a televised event where the participants, called “tributes”, must fight to the death in a dangerous outdoor arena until only one remains. The winning tribute and his/her corresponding district is then rewarded handsomely with food and plenty. The purpose of the Hunger Games is to provide entertainment for the Capitol and to serve as a warning to the Districts to remind them of the Capitol’s power and lack of remorse”.
But katniss -“the girl on fire” as she is commonly reffered to in the triology triggers something that no one foresaw. A rebellion. Which puts everyone she cared for in danger.. The book ends with the thought that the games never end.
Its preety awesome (atleast i loved it!) . Every chapter ends with a suspense (more often a shock) which leaves you wantin to read more! This action packed thriller is definately a MUST read to all those who enjoy reading. 😀
Guess that sums it up. . . but now that i finished the triology (like my life depended on it..). . anyone have any other awesome book in mind? – kind of feelin jobless again.
