“I volunteer as a tribute..”
The Hunger Games a is part love story, part survival of the fittest adventure, very reminiscent of Survivor.
Each year, in this futurist version of the USA, two competitors from each of the 12 districts are forced to fight the death as a part of the Hunger Games. Some districts are wealthy and train up youth to prepare them to bring their districts glory.
The main character, Katniss, comes from the far off District 12, with no training or hope of winning. She steps into the spotlight when her younger sister, Prim, is chosen to fight. She boldly takes her place as a tribute . She is paired with Peeta, the baker’s son.
Without giving away too much of the plot, the story follows these two as they face off against all the other competitors. In riveting fashion, you travel with Katniss in her fight to survive.
