    Set in the shining Capitol and brutal dystopian world of Panem, built on the ruins of North America, The Hunger Games trilogy and its prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, explore the effects of violence and media sensationalism on young people—through the gripping story of a brave and fierce teenage girl.

    16-year-old Katniss Everdeen lives in the poorest sector of Panem—its coal producer, District 12. Along with her younger sister, Prim, Katniss awaits the yearly lottery to see who will participate in the Hunger Games, a nationally televised battle where contestants—one boy and one girl, ages 12 to 18, from each of Panem’s 12 districts—fight to the death. But when 12-year-old Prim is chosen as that year’s “tribute,” Katniss spares her sister’s life by volunteering to take her place. Katniss is shipped off to the Capitol—and certain death—along with her fellow District 12 Tribute, the peaceful Peeta Mellark. The pair’s mentor, an arena survivor named Haymitch, comes up with a ploy to pass the two off as star-crossed lovers to gain public sympathy. Katniss and Peeta play for the camera and attempt to avoid a terrible death at the hands of their arena competitors. With the help of her hunting skills and sharp instincts, Katniss gradually becomes a symbol of hope for Panem’s oppressed citizens—and a pawn in a rebellion. Throughout the series, Katniss struggles with her place in the spotlight; her feelings for Peeta and another young fighter from District 12, Gale Hawthorne; and her purpose as a warrior.

    第七十四届饥饿游戏即将开始。

    在荒蛮的野外环境中,每个人都想置你于死地,

    你能靠自己的力量生存下来吗?

    24人参加竞赛。只有一人能够存活。

    抽签日那天,凯特尼斯的人生彻底改变了。

    在未来的北美洲,帕纳姆国建立在一片废墟之上,它的中心凯匹特位于十二个区的中央。每年,十二个区都被迫向凯匹特送去年龄在12岁至18岁的少男少女“贡品”各一名,去参加饥饿游戏,这是一项残酷而可怕的生与死的竞赛,所有的贡品必须战斗到死,最后的幸存者就是胜者。

    竞技场是经过人工布置的森林、荒原。竞赛中,猎杀、追踪、饥饿、伪装、智斗等生死存亡的时刻,都被电视现场直播到全国,每个人都必须观看,而且要当成节日一样庆祝。对于凯匹特,这是年度盛会,是一场游戏。对于其他十二区,是羞辱和折磨。

    生存是16岁的凯特尼斯的本能,她依靠在十二区围栏外偷猎、采集野果勉强养活妈妈、妹妹和自己。当凯特尼斯代替被抽中的妹妹参加饥饿游戏时,她明白这对她可能意味着死亡。如果她想生存,她必须在人性与生存、生活与爱情之间做出选择。

    在竞技场上,凯特尼斯机缘巧合被塑造成燃烧的女孩,又与本区的另一个贡品皮塔组成明星恋人备受瞩目。她很困惑,自己与皮塔的关系?她企图拯救其他竞赛者的生命,机智地应对游戏中出现的谜题,使她成了电视观众关注的中心。生死关头,她才发现爱情竟然也可以成为赢的策略。

    凯特尼斯只有继续做她自己。那个倔强的女孩,她拒绝向游戏规则屈服,拒绝向死亡屈服,也拒绝向爱情屈服。她的拒绝会带来什么,未来又会怎样呢?
