Un pasado de guerras ha dejado los 12 distritos que dividen Panem bajo el poder tiránico del "Capitolio". Sin libertad y en la pobreza, nadie puede salir de los límites de su distrito. Sólo una chica de 16 años, Katniss Everdeen, osa desafiar las normas para conseguir comida. Sus prinicipios se pondrán a prueba con "Los juegos del hambre", espectáculo televisado que el Capitolio organiza para humillar a la población. Cada año, 2 representantes de cada distrito serán obligados a subsistir en un medio hostil y luchar a muerte entre ellos hasta que quede un solo superviviente. Cuando su hermana pequeña es elegida para participar, Katniss no duda en ocupar su lugar, decidida a demostrar con su actitud firme y decidida, que aún en las situaciones más desesperadas hay lugar para el amor y el respeto. Suzanne Collins es autora de la serie bestseller del Ney York Times "Underland Chronicles" y es guionista de programas de televisión juveniles. En esta primera entrega nos brinda a partes iguales suspense, ética, aventura y amor en un contexto situado en un futuro con inquietantes paralelismos con nuestro mundo actual.
