The setting for the book is in a post-apocalyptic North America now called Panem, a solitary nation with no mention of outsiders, consisting of the governing Capitol and the surrounding districts, each producing different products to the leading state. Once the districts rebelled in war and failed. As a reminder of their power the Capitol reap one girl and one boy from each district every year and lock them all in vast outdoor 'arena' for the Hunger Games, of which there is one rule: last one alive is the winner. Enter our protagonist, a young lady called Katniss.
Anyway, I have to go, I need a cup of tea and to carry on with this thrilling story. If you haven't already, start reading! xoxo
