A book about a girl named Katniss Everdeen from the Capitol-controlled land of Panem. There are 12 districts, Katniss being from the poorest district District 12.
The first book was very good, as it involved children fighting to the death. The second book was also good, but not as, since there were less children in that Hunger Games. The third book ruined the series for me, I loved the first two books when the main conflict was battle and rebellion. The last book focused way too much on romance in my opinion.
Person 1: Did you read the Hunger Games yet?
Person 2: Yes, and it will be hard to read the first book again after reading Mockingjay.

A book, with a movie coming out in March 2012.

It is about a girl named Katniss Everdeen who lives in the remains of the United States after years of drought, famine, and war. The government, (the Capitol,) is totally corrupt, and sends 24 children from 12 to 18 into a gruesome deathmatch. Katniss totally goes apeshit in the arena with Peeta, a baker's son, and I don't wanna give to much away.

If you haven't read the trilogy.. do it now.
Person1: Arent you excited to watch the last Twilight movie?

Person2: Yah, right, Hunger Games is the way to go. Katniss kicks ass!!

The hunger games is set in the not-too-distant future, North America is divided into districts 1-12 and the Capitol. The twelve districts ar run by the capital and president snow, each year a boy and girl (aged 12 to 18) from each of the twelve districts are picked to fight in something called the hunger games. The hunger games is a tournament where the 24 children are put into an arena and have to fight each other to the death, the last remaining, "tribute" are they are called, is winner and get a parade, food, medicine, a house and other thing for his/her family.

The story revolves around a 16 year old girl named Katniss, the tributes and picked in a draw each year, each girl and boys name goes in for it, Katniss and her younger sister Prim are both in the draw, Prim's name is called and Katniss volunteers to take her place, also a boy name Peetas name is called and there are both in the tournament. It's a awesome book series that sadly some idiots think it's next Twilight. The Hunger Games is NOT like Twilight. First off Katniss is a strong and brave female character unlike Twilight's main character Bella. Second of all although the Hunger Games does have romance in it it's not all about that and is more focused on surviving the Hunger Games. And last but not least the plot in the book is actually good. So please do not say it's the next twilight.If any thing it's the next Harry Potter.
Guy 1: Are you excited for the Hunger Games movie?
Guy 2:No way! It's just the next Twilight.
Guy 1:Do you even know what it's about?

An Amazing book that Teenage girls obsess over because it isamazing. People are saying they are Fans when they have just seen the film when they dont really know what is happing!

It is NOT TWILIGHT! If you remove the Love Triangle from Twilight its a story about a girl who moves and it rains alot. You remove the love Triangle from Hunger Games and its about a girl who fights in the Hunger Games and Saves the country of Panem from the Hunger Games
Friend: TEAM PEETA
Me: IF YOU SAY TEAM ONE MORE TIME I WILL SET MY MUTTS AND TRACKER JACKERS ON YOU!

Teacher: Everyone there is a test today
Me: The odds are NOT in my favour

Worst Enemy: I went watching Hunger Games Yesterday it was AMAZING I am like the NUMBER ONE FAN
Me: So tell me who Madge Undersee is!
Worst Enermy:...

1. The 'battle to the death' competition from the Hunger Games book trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The basic premiss is that all that is left of America is a wealthy 'Capitol' surrounded by the 12 'districts'. The Hunger Games see a male and female, teenage 'tribute' from each of the districts battle until only one survives.

2. The event itself as seen in the books and films. Also referred to as just 'the Games'.

3. Now also in use as a description for any fiercely competitive/violent event.
1. I love the Hunger Games books.

2. You should have seen the beauty pageant contestants backstage, it was like the Hunger Games in there!

3. When he and his siblings fall out, it's like he's holding the Hunger Games in his house.
