The result: The Hunger Games Trilogy. One that is not erased until the very end of the trilogy. The setting is great, well-thought through, and everything is flawless. The books she is most successful for in teenage eyes are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I think this is the area that divides the fans and the haters.
Her mother promises she will take care of Prim. I saw him in a few movies where he was like 9 years old, and these days he is looking fine. This consists more of the deep, emotional love that pairs in this trilogy feel for each other. It's plainly obvious that one of Collins' major points was to make the world of The Hunger Games universe as real as it could possibly be. Katniss' sister Primrose is experiencing her first reaping and has one entry.
But needless to say, they make a great team when their lives are on the line. Save your money to buy any and all Hunger Games merchandise. I couldn't put it down until I found out how it ended. The romantic subplot was handled with the subtlety of mouldy porridge and the same level of emotional range. I did a review on that for my work newsletter which made me think about it for a good long while. Hunger Games: I thought the first book was outstanding.
This year Katniss Everdeen, who is sixteen and has twenty entries in the reaping, is more afraid for her friend, Gale, who is eighteen and has forty-two entries. And Collins pulls this off perfectly as well. I did a review on that for my work newsletter which made me think about it for a good long while. That was something else that kept me reading: the speed of the novels never lets up, and each installment is just as exciting as the last. In this horribly disturbing world, we are introduced to the protagonist Katniss Everdeen, a girl who volunteers to take her little sister's place in the Hunger Games.
The storyline and plot are not slow or boring. The beautiful Jennifer Lawrence portrays Katniss perfectly in the movies. Collins was not afraid to push the genre to the limit, exposing audiences to the impenitent nature of a powerful dystopian government and the bravery that needs to rise to put said government in its place. Sadly, I found this character largely missing in the final book, Mockingjay. I still like Mockingjay, quite a lot, but it is hard to have the same feelings for it as I do for the first two. It will make your heart tighten.
It draws out your emotions and engages them, keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would have been so mad if I'd read it when it first released and had to wait for the third book. So naturally, the following year they force Katniss and Peeta to compete again, this time with former victors of the games. Catching Fire: This book was mostly a bridge between the first and third books, but still a good read in its own right. I picked up the first book the year it was released in 2008. As she looked for food in garbage cans, Peeta saw her searching the empty garbage cans behind his family's bakery.
Almost everything and everyone else is for sale or manipulation. I get that she would not want to go back to 12, but why doesn't Katniss stay with her? I read the whole trilogy hoping in vain for redemption, revolution among the children at some point. Had to take a brief rest so I wouldn't get saturated but I needed that instant gratification and read the next two books cover-to-cover in just a few days. To know the whole story you have to read the third book, Mockingjay. No doubt he felt more for her but Peeta was such the better man. I totally felt myself plunked down into District 12 and felt Mrs.
So it was enjoyable and I do like the young feller who will portray Peeta in the Hunger Games movie. For the most part Katnis keeps her feelings and emotions guarded or hidden. I did fall in love with Peeta - nothing more needs be said on that. Then I saw an extended trailer at the theater and had to read it right now. It was decided to leave the tunnel intact to give the survivors a chance to surrender, but anticipating that the escapees would be armed and desperate, the rebels fortified the buildings surrounding the square with machine gun nests.
