Review: This first book in a series, Hunger Games, depicts a horrific future for the U.S. The Hunger Games is the government's way of both entertaining and terrorizing its citizens. One boy and one girl from each of the twelve districts of what is now Panem, are forced to compete to the death. Watching the survivor-type competition is mandatory for the masses. Katniss, the main character, senses this could be a death sentence. The question is what will she sacrifice to survive?
