Archived from the original on July 2, June 20, And it's a good book to take you somewhere else; I could really get into The Hunger Game and I've been able to get into it reading it the second time round.
Although it is more difficult reading it the second time round because I have now seen the film and I imagined it completely differently to how they did it in the film - and I liked my version better. I'm going straight onto the next one, Catching Fire, as you can't resist reading them all as quickly as possible as soon as you've started! A good book to sit down with on a horrible rain day! It makes you happy to be alive and happy to know that you are not going to be entered in a competition where you are to fight to your death every year.
But it's a great story! And a great idea for a story. It's one of the books I wish I had written myself! One of my favourite series of book ever! I highly suggest reading it, and hope Suzanne Collins goes on to write more teen fiction as The Hunger Games was so good! I would read anything by her without batting an eyelid! One of the best authors out there at the moment in my opinion!
Good job Suzanne Collins! A rule change is announced, allowing the tributes from the same district to win as a pair. Katniss finds and nurses a wounded Peeta who later revealed that he formed an alliance with the careers to protect Katniss , acting the part of a girl in love to gain gifts. 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.
