Breathtakingly fast-paced and wildly entertaining! A fantastic read about the survival of amazing characters in an apocalyptic alien invasion. Highly recommendable to read the first book of this masterpiece sci-fi triology!
After watching the following video all of you will be dying to read this suspense packed book written by Veronica Roth!!!
An amazingly well written page-turner! An intriguing and mysterious suppressing system full of lies. A life full of rules and regulations where dreams and hopes are forbidden. If you’re different you are dangerous. A distopian masterpiece.
The main characters are called Josh and Sophie Newman.They are normal twins untill they accedenly watch two magicans fight.
After that they want to know more about this magic.
I think it’s really interesting how Josh and Sophie find out more and more about real magic.
If you love fantasy stories like I do you defenitly have to read this book because its nearly only about magic and its also very reveting to read and you really don’t know what is happening next.
The main character is America Singer. She has red hair, green eyes and is very beautiful. She and her family are fives, that means they are pretty poor. But then she gets picked by the Selection and everything changes…
I really recommend this book to everyone who likes love stories because it´s 90% romance. It´s very well written and I personally liked the ups and downs of the story. It´s also 10% civil war so not pure kitsch 🙂 It´s really one of the greatest books I´ve ever read…
The Hunger Games take place in the capitol every year because president snow wants to show his power and wants to destroy their faith. From all the 12 districts a boy and a girl between the ages of 12-18 get chosen to fight for their life and honor their district.

We would like to present the suspense-packed page turner: The Hunger Games. It is an absolutely brilliant novel, written by a fantastic author, Suzanne Collins who came up with this compelling story.
The Hunger Games are set in destroyed North America. After a war, the glorious country Panem developed. Its centre, the beating heart is called the Capitol, which is surrounded by twelve districts. The districts have to support the Capitol. In return they keep peace and people would live under their reign in law and order.
Once a district 13 exited. It planned a revolution against the Capitol, which failed, district 13 was destroyed. And to remind the people of the remaining districts, that they haven’t got a chance against the power of the Capitol, they invented the Hunger Games, which are organized every year. In these games, 24 tributes, one girl and one boy from the age of twelve to eighteen from every district get picked to fight in an arena, with a yearly changed location, until only one is left. The winner then is a hero for lifetime.
Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen year old girl from district 12. (One of the poorest.) There she lives with her little sister Prim and her mother a very hard life. Since her father died, Katniss was the one who had to provide the family with food. So she had to learn how to hunt. Katniss is excellent with bow and arrow, even better than her friend Gale, who’s the only person she can really trust. Katniss is not really the joking type of person but who would be like that if he or she had to fight every day to survive. She is a really strong willed, tough, clever, loyal and passionate person, who would die for the things she believes in. But Katniss’ life changes completely when Prim’s name gets picked at the reaping. (The day when the tributes get chosen.) There is nothing that she loves more than her little sister, so Katniss volunteers.
Now she has to go to the Hunger Games. There are 24 tributes and only one can survive. Will Katniss come back to the things she loves so much, to Prim who won’t last long without her, who believes that her sister will come back? Only one can get out of the arena alive.
Who will it be?
Akira: I really enjoyed reading this amazing book, and I highly recommend it. It’s written by Kiera Cass and the main character is a girl called America Singer. It’s called ‘The Selection’ because America enters the competition called The Selection.
The story is set in the future, but it is not about flying cars. Thirty five girls have to fight for the Prince. You maybe now think of ‘The Bachelor’, but it is a lot better. He has to choose one girl who then gets to marry him and becomes a princess and one day also a queen. The problem is, America doesn’t even want to marry some trashy prince, because she has a secret love at home. Aspen, her boyfriend, who really does love her and doesn’t want to lose her, but he has to let her go, especially when something happens between the prince and her that shouldn’t have happened. There is a caste system with 8 levels and America is in the 5th. She’d automatically get in the 1st level, if she got chosen by the prince. When the man who tell the people who is selected came up in the TV, America couldn’t believe what he said. But you have to find that out yourself. All in all, I think it’s an amazing book also for our age and I recommend reading it for the girls in our class because I guess the boys wouldn’t like it that much. Still, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read!:)
Pilar: I think this is a nice book, more for girls, but boys can also read it. There are 3 parts. This is the first part. I really liked this book, especially because it´s about princesses. This book is a book written by Kiera Cass, it´s about a girl called America Singer. She lives in Illéa. This book is in the future, but not the future with alien invasion… There is a cast system, there are 8 levels America is in one of the last levels she´s in level 5. This year Prince Maxton has to choose one of 35 girls. This is called the selection. America was one of those girls. She doesn´t want to marry some trashy price, because she has a secret love home, Aspen. He´s from the last level, so they are not allowed to be together. That was the reason why America was shocked when she heard her name in the television. She went in the castle. When she gets chosen by the prince, she would be sent in the 1st level. In the castle she found one really good friend called Kriss. Slowly after some time she falls in love with the Prince, but her boyfriend aspen is a knight in the castle, so everything gets really crazy for America.
