Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Hunger Games

Katniss Everdeen lost her father and almost lost her mother to the way the Capital treats the people of the districts and when 2 young people from each of 12 districts is chosen to be in the Hunger Games, she's not about to lose her little sister, too. So, she volunteers as tribute and fully believes that her life will likely be over soon. But she's stronger than she thinks and with the help of the other tribute in her district, Peeta, she watches as the other tributes are taken down before her. In the Hunger Games, it is kill or be killed.

The people of the Capitol - the privileged and wealthy - expect one person to come out stronger. But they don't expect what Katniss delivers.
Best part of story, including ending: I loved this story because the characters are well portrayed and every minute of the movie is filled with action. There's a small amount of romance and a lot of hope.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when Katniss gives the young tribute (younger than the rest of them) a burial and sings to her. She then raises three fingers to the cameras - a sign of solidarity and hope.
