Synopsis

A brand-new special edition 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 special edition audiobook includes a bonus track Q&A with the narrator!

About the Author

Best known for The Hunger Games Trilogy, author, Suzanne Collins, from Hartford, Connecticut has risen to star status in the literary field. Her works have sold more than 87 million copies worldwide.

Influenced by her college history teaching father, Suzanne learned about history, and especially war history, at a very early age. He was always very open to his children about his military career, including his time deployed to Vietnam Nam. She felt that her father had a sort of urgency to teach them, so they spent many family outings at one battlefield or another. Those tours were quite extensive and very comprehensive, giving her a learned sense of the meaning of war.

Suzanne began her career after graduation from graduate school at New York University. She started with children's television programs on Nickelodeon and the children's WB. It was with the WB'S James Proimos, who suggested she write books. Her first attempt was successful in The Underland Chronicles, and then followed by her hugely successful, The Hunger Games. By late spring of 2011, the first in the trilogy was adapted to film. Due to the immense popularity of her books, she was named one of Time Magazine's most influential people in 2010. The list is long and prestigious of the awards given to Suzanne Collins.
