The Hunger Games is a 2008 young adult novel by American writer Suzanne Collins. It is written in the voice of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in the post-apocalyptic nation of Panem, where the countries of North America once existed. The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, exercises political control over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12–18 from each of the twelve districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle to the death.

The book received mostly positive feedback from major reviewers and authors, including author Stephen King. It was praised for its storyline and character development, though some reviewers have noted similarities between Collins' book and the Japanese novel Battle Royale (1999), as well as other works. In writing The Hunger Games, Collins drew upon Greek mythology and contemporary reality television for thematic content. The novel won many awards, including the California Young Reader Medal, and was named one of Publishers Weekly's "Best Books of the Year" in 2008.

The Hunger Games was first published in hardcover on September 14, 2008 by Scholastic, featuring a cover designed by Tim O'Brien. It has since been released in paperback and also as an audiobook and ebook. After an initial print of 200,000, the book had sold 800,000 copies by February 2010. Since its release, The Hunger Games has been translated into 26 languages, and publishing rights have been sold in 38 territories. The novel is the first in The Hunger Games trilogy, followed by Catching Fire (2009) and Mockingjay (2010). A film adaptation, directed by Gary Ross and co-written and co-produced by Collins herself, was released in 2012.

饥饿游戏三部曲的时间设定在大灾难后的北美洲,一个自废墟建立起的国家“施惠国”(Panem)之中。在那场吞噬大片土地与人口的灾难后,施惠国自废墟中诞生,并建立起13个行政区,以建立在洛矶山脉的“都城”(Capitol)为中心实施统治。在施惠国建立后不久,负责供应都城各项天然资源与产品的13个行政区发动叛变,进入施惠国历史上的“黑暗时期”。然而,叛变迅速被都城以高科技与优势军力弭平,并投放毒气弹毁掉第十三区,藉以杀鸡儆猴。   为了惩罚发动叛乱的各行政区,都城要求所有行政区每年都必须派出一对少年少女到竞技场参加“饥饿游戏”(Hunger Game),同时透过电视转播播出“贡品”们的比赛过程,藉以打击行政区的反抗意识。除了比赛开始后60秒内不可踏离原地和食人外,游戏没有任何规则,包括杀人也不受限制,而最后存活的贡品即为胜利者。
