Oh my gosh - just fantastic! The story takes place in a sort of alternative universe, in a country called Panem; and the main character is a girl who has to volunteer for this event called The Hunger Games, a death-math between twenty-four kids, 2 Promeach of the twelve Districts that make up Panem. The story involves love, action, fighting, cliffhangers, super-special-awesome plot twists, and everything else that makes up an AMAZING book! 100% recommended; it's very well written and sooo good.
This book was very entertaining and surprisingly accurate! It gave a great window into the lives of ordinary Russians during World War II. It allows for some very quick reading, while learning quite a bit about that time period. The reader gets to "meet" Red Army soldiers, Wehrmacht troopers, Russian partisans, and even blood-thirsty cannibals! What fun!
