I found the books simultaneously compelling and painful and while I read them in what amounts to about 2 days worth of reading, they were incredibly fatiguing to read. But needless to say, they make a great team when their lives are on the line. Reading it has left me sad, in a good way. That would be like you telling me about your day and stopping every five minutes to remind me that you're wearing your Chuck Taylor's and then after three months of this, Chuck Taylor's suddenly become sentient, rebel against humanity, and then install you as their king. Gale holds her at an icy distance.
I read and saw many of my online friends tweeting and shouting about The Hunger Games, so I decided it to give it a shot. The scope of the film leaves some character actions and motivations a bit vague, which will cause non-fans to leave the theater with a mixed impression of who they are. This is one excellent book. However, I did have the full trilogy, and the second book sucked me in completely. This jump is then followed by Edward-induced delirium or nausea so sickening that you wish you'd had a lobotomy instead of letting Stephanie Meyer infect your life.
I agree with books needing to be considered for a more adult audience. Each district has its own specialty that benefits the Capitol, such as coal mining, agriculture, seafood, etc. The main character, 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, volunteers for the Hunger Games to keep her younger sister from being required to participate and her experiences and fight to survive are the heart of the book. He's practically an angel who got the raw end of a deal. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo.
Things are not always straightforward, and Katniss has to deal with a multitude of ethical issues as she struggles to survive. The Hunger Games was adapted for a , and the second book, , was adapted for a. The storyline and plot are not slow or boring. Not since Harry Potter, which I first read as an adult-in my early twenties, had I been so enamored in a book world. In Catching Fire, Katniss chooses Gale. I'd seen a lot of people around before I started the series who didn't like Mockingjay, and after starting the series, I kept wondering why.
Just when one game is over and you think she has persevered, she is thrown into another, and another, and another. Even more, it's a story about the high cost of war, and how none of the survivors ever stop paying. Either you hated the books for the graphic violence and despicable premise or you resonated with how wrong we can really go. Then, there is matter of deaths. He has the power of speech and spontaneity with which he sweeps people off their feet. In the Hunger Games, nearly anyone will betray anyone and can be sold out for survival, and no one can be trusted.

Media Reviews BookBrowse Review by Amy Reading If you are reading this review, chances are that you're wondering if the Hunger Games trilogy lives up to the hype. I think the greatest disappointment of the series was the final novel, Mockingjay. Since, for review purposes, I'm treating these three books as one I feel I need to asterisk my choice of stars, book 1 would be a 5 star, book 2 would be a 4 star and book 3 would be a 2 star in my mind. I had been on a kick where, after diving into the Twilight series don't judge me, ok you can Book releases: Hunger Games 2008, Catching Fire 2009, Mockingjay 2010 Movie releases: Hunger Games 2012, Catching Fire 2013, Mockingjay, part 1 in 2014 and Mockingjay part 2 in 2015 I wanted to sit down and figure out the math of it and I figure 7 years. The beautiful Jennifer Lawrence portrays Katniss perfectly in the movies.
Yes, they have their own weaknesses--they are well-drawn characters in the Potter series--but they are ultimately working for good and against evil. In my opinion, I really enjoyed this book. Despite a few hiccups that come with distilling a 350 page book told in first person into a two hour and twenty minute film, The Hunger Games is not only a solid adaptation of the source material - it succeeds at covering a copious amount of backstory, while at the same time delivering some genuinely entertaining and at times, thrilling moments, even for those who are still unfamiliar with the book series. To me the most profound and touching relationship was between Peeta and Katniss. This third book takes the brutality to a whole new level where people are killed and tortured everywhere.
Katniss is a reluctant participant in The Hunger Games, offering herself up only to spare her younger sister. So narrator-Katniss knows everything while narrated-Katniss doesn't. Whereas the focus in the first two is split about evenly between the main plot line and Katniss' emotions and thoughts, the final book suddenly tips the scales toward the latter. If you had to end the series somewhere easy for Katniss, then yeah, just the first book would probably be best. I loved the first book, it is hard to comprehend a world in which these oppressive living conditions and the games were an accepted part of life, to see how Katnis reacted to this world and the games, and to see her love of life and her compassion for others in face of the oppression and injustice of the games. The United States no longer exists.
She is very strong, whether it's for herself, Peeta, Gale, Prim, or even the whole country mainly in Mockingjay. Because they are reading for entertainment, and expected an engaging plot with relatable characters and themes that would take them on a journey to another world. The third book was the most disappointing as it seemed to jump very quickly and have to skim over stuff. Katniss is likable, but deeply flawed. I did kind of wonder why Katniss wasn't thinking about Gale all the time when she was in the arena, but I suppose when you're fighting to stay alive your boyfriend back home kind of takes a backseat. Bestselling author Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children's literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle grade readers. I know I am in the minority here, but I don't get the popularity, except for the strength of Katniss.
Katniss should be relieved, happy even. It draws out your emotions and engages them, keeps you on the edge of your seat. As a result, I read the books with these things in mind. This jump is then followed by Edward-induced delirium or nausea so sickening that you wish you'd had a lobotomy instead of letting Stephanie Meyer infect your life. I saw him in a few movies where he was like 9 years old, and these days he is looking fine. Her mother, her love interests, her friends - everyone including the sister she apparently loves so much are little more than cardboard figures passing through the background of her life, doing little more than complicating it.
