Publisher Description

Emmy Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany narrates a brand-new recording of the first audiobook in the worldwide bestselling trilogy from Suzanne Collins!

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Still, if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

This audiobook includes a bonus track Q&A with Tatiana Maslany!

    " The Hunger Games is a strong book for young adults, one that helps them look at and understand realistic fiction. While this book isn't the best for younger audiences, it's definitely a good 5th-adult type of book. The characters are pretty good, the pacing is nice, and the world that it introduces us to is interesting enough that you want to keep reading. The Hunger Games themselves being the main focus of the book, as you wonder what will happen next as they keep on changing things in the middle of the games. It's a definite must read. "

About the Author

Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle-grade readers. Her debut for slightly older readers, The Hunger Games, immediately became a New York Times bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It was called “addictive” by Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly and “amazing” by Stephenie Meyer on her website and was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2008 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. It is now a major motion picture as well. The other two books in the trilogy, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, also enjoyed enormous success. In April 2010, Collins was named to the Time 100 list of “the world’s most influential people.” Collins has also had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains It All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writers Guild of America nomination in animation for cowriting the critically acclaimed Christmas special, Santa, Baby! She lives with her family in Connecticut.
