I've been covering video games, Hollywood and technology for 20 years Share to facebook Share to twitter Share to linkedin Although author Suzanne Collins only wrote three books, her Hunger Games trilogy has been able to zap the magic out of J. Taking into consideration print and digital Kindle book sales combined, The Hunger Games, which are much shorter reads than the Potter books, have captivated a wider range of fans around the globe. Catching Fire is expected to begin production this year. Rather than rush a console version out the door for the first film, Lionsgate enlisted developer Funtactix to create The Hunger Games Adventures Facebook game. The developer worked with Collins to create an immersive online game world that continues to expand. The online game also connects directly with the film and home video release.
When the Gamemakers send a delivery of what each contestant needs most, Katniss risks her life to obtain medicine for Peeta. She is intercepted by a career tribute Clove, who gloats over Rue's death and tries to kill Katniss, but is killed by Thresh, the male District 11 tribute, who spares Katniss for Rue's sake.
The medicine saves Peeta's life, and they both spend time hunting and collecting food. Katniss and Peeta become the last two survivors, but the Gamemakers revoke the rule change to force one to kill the other for a dramatic finale. In defiance, Katniss prepares to consume the poisonous "nightlock" berries with Peeta.
Realizing they intend to commit suicide so that there will not be a victor for the games, the Gamemakers declare Katniss and Peeta the victors.
Although both of them receive a hero's welcome as a couple, Katniss is warned by Haymitch that the Capitol may take action against her for her defiance.
Along the way back to District 12, Peeta is heartbroken to learn that Katniss' actions were part of a calculated ploy to gain sympathy. Katniss, however, is unsure of her own feelings and her future. Themes The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins in In an interview with Collins, it was noted that the novel "tackles issues like severe poverty , starvation, oppression, and the effects of war among others.
Katniss needs to hunt to provide food for her family, resulting in the development of skills that are useful to her in the Games such as her proficiency with the bow and arrow , and represents her rejection of the Capitol's rules in the face of life-threatening situations. The tributes build a personality they want the audience to see throughout the Games. Miller writes: "The rules are arbitrary, unfathomable, and subject to sudden change.
A brutal social hierarchy prevails, with the rich, the good-looking, and the athletic lording their advantages over everyone else. To survive you have to be totally fake.
Adults don't seem to understand how high the stakes are; your whole life could be over, and they act like it's just some "phase"!

Even better were the believable and likable protagonists complete with tough girl heroine and sensitive hero , and the fact author Suzanne Collins didn't shy away from blood and gore albeit slight sanitized. I don't really know how to explain my feelings about this book. It's a great fast paced story with action, romance, drama and real sorrow too.
The heroine is guardian type personality but the people she loves keep being taken from her and the one person she seems finally able to keep The end was annoyingly leading, but I can't help thinking like all tyrants President Snow was arrogant and foolish, but in his reactions to Katniss he almost assumes she is openly and intentionally rebelling when all she is really doing is trying to protect the lives of the people she loves.
