About this Item

Pristine first edition/first printing of Ms. Collins first book in her ground-breaking Hunger Games trilogy. Collins kicks up the adrenaline in this fast-paced noir thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world that echoes Greek mythology laced with some of the more twisted elements of our own contemporary culture. Picture an evil Capital (located in the Rockies!?!) which keeps its outlying Districts under control by requiring them each to send a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to fight each other to the death on live television, while their families and friends are compelled to watch until only a single survivor is left. The Mockingjay Part 2 film could increase interest in first editions of the books. Bookseller Inventory # 1209080001

About this title

Synopsis:

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

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 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 weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
