The Hunger Games was an amazing book. It was amazing how Suzanne Collins imagination made up Panem, which is the future, ruins of North America and how it was divided up into twelve districts. I liked how each district as you got lower had less wealth but still was very important to the Capital. For example each district had its own specialty that benefited that Capitol, such as coal mining, agriculture, seafood, and other specialties. Some districts provide the Capitol with energy or material goods and some provide the manpower to keep those in the Capitol in power. Some thing I didn’t like in The Hunger Games was how every year the twelve districts had to send two representatives, boy and girl, to participate in the games no matter how old they were. This is when Katniss’ sister, Prim, got pulled from the basket and Katniss didn’t want her sister to participate so she volunteered herself for her. This was a memorable moment in the book because it showed how Katniss had a lot of courage. Another memorable part of the book is at the end when the only two people left are Peeta and Katniss and the Capital says that only one can live. Since either one of them didn’t want to kill the other they both took poisonous berries and as they were about to eat them the Capital yelled from them to stop saying they had both won The Hunger Games. This was a memorable part of the book because it was showing that neither one, Katniss nor Peeta, wanted to die without the other one so they both decided to die together if they had to die. Since the government didn’t want both to die either they declared both tributes as winners of the Hunger Games. In the book discussion my group and I had I thought it was a very productive discussion. Some of they key points my group brought up was memorable moments throughout the book. For example on page 20-23, when Katniss volunteered as a tribute for Prim. We all agreed that this was a very memorable part of the book. Also another memorable part...
