The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture!The astonishing bestseller is now a fantastic movie. Here is the original novel with new movie artwork on the cover. (Original cover version also available.)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 is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead 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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

3.0 Nüchterne Brutalität einer Zukunftsvision mit ausbleibenden Tiefgang und wenig Reflektion
Meine Meinung: Bei den vielen schon existierenden Rezensionen spare ich mir eine Inhaltsangabe und Coveranalyse. Ich denke, dazu gibt es genügend schon Geschriebenes. Deswegen beschränke ich mich darauf, was ich beim Lesen einfach empfunden habe. Natürlich ist mir die Thematik schon bekannt, kenne i...

4.0 The Hunger Games
I reread the Hunger Games earlier this year and then again in October. I have my problems with it (first person narration probably being the biggest), but it's one of the better YA books I've read. Very formulaic but here it works.

4.5 Hunger Games Series
I think that you could read this book with your 6th graders. Especially, during whole group. It will keep both the girls and boys entertained. It would be a good way to introduce the students to different types of fiction. In this case Dystopian.
