Welcome to the nation of Panem. Set in the distant future, where food and water are hard to come by, the residents try to live as peacefully as possible. The nation is divided into 13 districts, each separated from the other, as a sort of punishment for rebelling against the Capitol ruled under a titular king called The President.
The President organizes the Hunger Games, an annual event in which the participants are decided by the luck of draw. Katniss Everdeen, our protagonist, lives in District 12, and wants to live a normal life as a hunter. But when her sister’s name is pulled up, she volunteers to participate as her substitute. She meets Peeta Mellark, her partner from the same district. Can she survive with her limited skills in a game with only one winner in the end? You have to read this to find out.
