"Great opening to a good triology"

I think the first part of the triology was also the best. It describes a dystopian world in future North America. It doesn't say why but for some reasons there is a country called Panem which consists of 12 disctricts and the Capitol. Every year one girl and one boy from each district are chosen to fight in an arena until there is only one of them left.
Katniss Everdeen has been caring about her mother and sister Primrose for years by hunting in the forests outside of her disctrict. Like everybody else she hopes not to be chosen at the reaping. Well, she isn't but she ends up in the arena anyways.
I really liked the way it was told and the way it changed from Katniss being nothing more than a tribute to the Capitol to something more that could be able to change the whole world they are living in.

The book has got two sequels, the second book is also great but in my personal opinion the thrid book wasn't as outstanding as the others. It was still interesting but not as great as the frist. Still you have to read them all because after finishing Hunger Games, you'll be hungry for more!
