…..and so should you!

What if you were put into a future world? A world where there are 12 Districts and one Capital. Each district has it own job for the Capital. And each year every district must send 1 girl and 1 boy between the ages of 12 and 18, to fight to the death in the Hunger Games.  No rules but there can only be one survivor. Worse than that everyone is forced to watch them fight. Katniss Everdeen is 16-years old when she volunteers for her 12-year old sister Primrose at the reaping to go into the Hunger Games. Katniss must leave all her loved ones behind and possibly never see them again. She is put into the arena with 23 other kids one of which is from her district. How will Katniss get through these inhumane games? Find out in The Hunger Games the first book in The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzann Collins.

I read the whole Hunger Games series this summer.  And LOVED them. The first was by far my favorite. I read it in 24-hours and was having a nervous break down until I got the next book. Every chapter leaves you wanting more and every sentence is thrilling. There is action, adventure, romance and even a little bit of comedy.  The Hunger Games is not meant for young children.  I would say anyone under the age of ten should not read it, and even after that it depends on the kid’s maturity level. It is violent. But if you can get past the violence, Suzann Collins is an amazing writer. You can so easily relate to the character, if not Katniss (the main character) then you re bound to be able to relate to a different character. Each character is unique and complex. Some people say, “The Hunger Games is just about kids killing kids” but it’s NOT! This fan-tab-u-luos series is about Katniss’s inner battle with the Capital’s ways and how far she will go to win the games. If you are looking for a can’t-put-down book to read, I highly suggest the Hunger Games by Suzann Collins. I would give it a 9.5 out of 10

hunger games movieALWAYS READ THE BOOK BEFORE SEEING THE MOVIE! The Hunger Games movie series first installment was good. There were a lot of key parts they missed that I was mad about. That didn’t stop me from watching it 20-times in a row but that’s off the point. The scritp was good but the shaky camera just annoyed me. The cast was superber. Jennifer Lawrence is hands-down the best Katniss. She is an amazing actress and portrays Katniss’ thoughts perfectly even when they are not said. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta perfectly. He him self is basically Peeta, they are the same person. Overall it was a great movie, I just wish the had added more of the book in it (which now sounds stupid because it’s based off the book but I still wish they had.) Don’t ruin the book for your self by seeing the movie first or talking to your friends about what happens. Read the book. Then talk to your friends and see the move in that order! I would give the move adaptation an 8 out of 10.

Have you read The Hunger Games or seen the movies? If so tell me your thoughts. If not go read, then watch, then come back and tell me your thoughts!

Comments on: "Hunger Games Review (Book and Movie)" (13)

  1. Well done, Hannah! I’ve read the books & saw the movies. It is a great series! I also agree: Read first. Watch second!

  2. I agree with every single little teensy tiny teeny wee thing you just said hannah! You should do more reviews in general!

    Love,

    Ava 😀 🙂 😛 😉 B-)

  3. I haven’t read the books, but we watched the first movie last night. I was reluctant to see or read these stories. I found the storyline upsetting. However, the movie held my attention, and now I’m more curious about the books. Good review, Hannah.

    • Thanks! I would defiantly read the books. The Hunger Games idea is hard to get passed but the story is AMAZING! Thanks for reading and commenting:)
      Hannah

  4. I saw the film and really enjoyed it – although I was a bit reluctant as it’s marketed so squarely as Young Adult. I haven’t been able to quite bring myself to buy the books for the same reason – sounds like I should get over it and give them a go.

  5. Hi Hannah! I totally agree. The book was so amazing and was hard to put down. I also see what you’re saying about the movie even though they missed a few parts it was still a great movie. Even though I agree, I would rate the book a 9 and the movie an 8 or 8.5! I’m really looking forward for more great book and movie reviews! I would also like to make a suggestion. Could you make a book review on divergent or make it after the movies comes out. I absolutely love the book its a great read. Thanks!

    • Hey Sidney! Thanks for reading and commenting. I will defiantly do some Divergent reviews(I’m waiting for the movie). Thanks again for reading and commenting any other suggestions just let me know:)
      Hannah

  6. Definitely believe that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    on the internet the easiest thing to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    even as other people think about worries that they plainly don’t understand about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as defined out the
    entire thing without having side-effects , other folks could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
