Book Review: The Hunger Games Trilogy

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

Okay, so I know a lot of people read this and it’s old but I want to make a book review of the trilogy because it’s one of my favorite series.

So, basically, as you have watched the movie, the government called The Capitol made The Hunger Games, and two teenagers, boy and girl from 12-18, are picked to fight with the other tributes until one is left.

So Katniss volunteered to be a tribute of the 74th Hunger Games to protect Prim. Katniss, Peeta and the other tributes train before The Hunger Games begin. Later on, Peeta reveals that he’s in love with Katniss, which causes a conflict between the two, but then Haymitch volunteers that they become star-crossed lovers and stuff. In the arena, they find each other and look after one another. Now the problem is that there should only be one winner. Haymitch, desperate, begged Seneca to make it two victors of the same district. So yea, they won and peacefully went back to District 12, bring their victory with them and pretending that their love for one another never happened.

The setting in this story is the year after THG, so they’re celebrating the 75th Hunger Games, or the 3rd Quarter Quell. Now, this is kind different kind of Hunger Games because ever quarter, the tributes picked will be the previous winners of each district. In District 12, Peeta and Katniss end up getting picked again. In this story, it’s much more action-packed and more interesting because it’s funnier and the characters in here are so awesome and you learn about their life. Peeta and Katniss made new friends from other Districts. I know what you’re thinking: how did they kill their friends? It’s a simple answer. They didn’t. Peeta and Katniss learned about Haymitch’s story in the arena and discovered a way to get out of the arena. Just like that, they broke the protection and escaped the arena.

But then it was a wrong move. Because of escaping the arena, the Capitol and District 12 were at war unexpectedly. Katniss and Peeta thought they were okay, but they were wrong. Because of them, District 12 didn’t exist anymore.

This is my favorite book in the series because it’s more action-packed, the arena was very unique and Finnick is just so lovable like yeah. I really like the arena because it was a clock. Like, every hour, something would happen at a particular place, which make it very unique. I like how Suzanne Collins used her imagination into making her own arena to imitate a clock.

District 12 is gone. Where are they staying? Take a wild guess.
It’s District 13. The survivors of District 12 escaped the bombing and found themselves in District 13, and without a choice, took the chance.

In this book, this is the most dramatic of all. Many people died here and I couldn’t handle it.

How did Katniss handle it? Peeta’s gone, District 12’s gone, and all her loved ones are being harmed. She rebelled against the Capitol to stop this.

Some Districts hated her, some adored her for being brave, but that didn’t stop her from doing what’s right.

In the end, the others had a tragic ending, while Katniss and Peeta lived happily. Okay, so I’ll say this. Those of you who has not read this and does not want a spoil, STOP READING. Katniss and Peeta get married and have kids. READ. Okay. So, we’ll never know when the Hunger Games will start again, but as long as Katniss is there, there is peace.

So, yeah, there’s gonna be a movie about all of this. The Hunger Games has already showed. Catching Fire is about to show on Nov. 20-22 in my country, and Mockingjay will have 2 part. Part 1 will probably be in 2014 and part 2 will probably be in 2015. That was just an assumption. But then I’m really excited for Catching Fire because 1) It’s gonna show this week; and 2) I’M WATCHING IT IN THE BIG SCREEN. Yup. I’m watching it with my friends on the 23rd, so yeah.

I recommend this book to everyone. And I mean everyone. It’s a really good series and I just want you guys to realize how Katniss Everdeen is such an inspiration to everyone. Comment below of how you think of the book and if you guys have watched Catching Fire, tell me how you guys think about it. 🙂

I’m not pretty. I’m not beautiful. I’m as radiant as the sun. -Suzanne Collins
