Publisher’s Synopsis (Scholastic Press)

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 steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—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 will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

 

Publisher’s Synopsis (Gramedia Pustaka Utama)

Dua puluh empat peserta.
Hanya satu pemenang yang selamat.

Amerika Utara musnah sudah. Kini di bekasnya berdiri negara Panem, dengan Capitol sebagai pusat kota yang dikelilingi dua belas distrik. Katniss, gadis 16 tahun, tinggal bersama adik perempuan dan ibunya di wilayah termiskin di Distrik 12.

Karena pemberontakan di masa lalu terhadap Capitol, setiap tahun masing-masing distrik harus mengirim seorang anak perempuan dan anak lelaki untuk bertarung dan ditayangkan secara langsung di acara televisi The Hunger Games. Hanya ada satu pemenang setiap tahun. Tujuannya adalah : membunuh atau dibunuh.

Ketika adik perempuannya terpilih mengikuti The Hunger Games, Katniss mengajukan diri untuk menggantikannya. Dan dimulailah pertarungan yang takkan pernah dilupakan Capitol.

 

My Review

Ada negera yang bikin games yang membuat anak-anak mudanya saling bunuh? Gila banget…tapi seruuuuuuuuuu…saya sampai telat ngantor gara-gara i can’t put it down.
