In just 2 days the world will be watching the Hunger Games unfold—and we’ll be in the front row, cheering our girl Katniss on. For Hunger Games newbies, let’s get you up to speed on the Hunger Games audio book and what it is that has us and millions of others around the world counting down the days until the premiere.
The Hunger Games trilogy is set in a post-apocalyptic version of North America, a pristine Capitol surrounded by twelve impoverished districts. To keep the districts at bay, the Capitol forces them to send one boy and one girl to participate in an annual event called the Hunger Games where they are forced to fight to the death on live TV. The winner (and there can only be one) gets a life of victory and wealth and the losers see only death.
Suzanne Collins builds a world for her characters that’s relatable while being majorly imaginative. Their struggles and triumphs—not to mention a classic love triangle—means that there’s lots to enjoy in the story, even if you’re not usually a sci-fi or fantasy fan.
See why we’re so excited? The Hunger Games is packed full of struggle, suspense, heroism and love—and if the movie’s as amazing as the book, we’re in for an epic adventure.
