1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money! 16 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had one expectation for this book - as it said that this was the 'ultimate guide' on the tributes.. I had hoped that perhaps we'd find out the names of the various tributes that were simply dismissed as "Tribute boy or Tribute girl". No such luck.

What you did get was a very condescending picture book for your money. One picture showed the 'tributes' in a hallway, and there was something to the effect for flavour text of 'realizing how young they were because they were so impatient'....

You get regurgitated pictures of the various districts that are freely available on Facebook and the internet as promotional material, and you quite simply get the feeling that whomever 'wrote' the book (and I use the word wrote scathingly) envisaged it a pictorial cliff-notes for those who cannot be bothered to read the series, or watch the movie.

I regret buying this.

The product description describes the Tribute Guide in the following manner (typo copied directly - they didn't even take the time to proof read this description!):

"The ultimate guide to the twenty-four Tributes participating in Panem's 74th annual Hunger Games. Follow the Tributes' journey from the Reaping to the Games, with a look at all teh highlights along the way. Get exclusive information about the Tributes' strengths and weaknesses, their weapons of choice, and their training before entering the arena."

A number of Tributes were secondary or ternary characters and it would have slowed the pace of The Hunger Games if Suzanne Collins went into more detail of all the Tributes and their districts in the book. This means she created empathy for a number of characters without allowing the reader to hear their story. From the product description of the Tribute Guide I expected the compiler to have worked with Collins to fill in the gaps left in the books. Instead the Tribute Guide consists of a series of images with small pockets of information taken from the books, just leaving blanks on any of the information not contained in The Hunger Games. It mainly re-tells Katniss and Peeta's journey in synopsis form, with little more than a nod to the other Tributes (aside from filling the centre pages with a page shot of each character from the film.)

It feels as if this was pulled together by a marketing executive in an afternoon with no consultation with the author of The Hunger Games. This book was a great disappointment.

I freely admit that I have been naive to the core aims of brand merchandising in purchasing this book and would urge you to not make this mistake!

For £3 I wouldn't consider this book-its very simple and it basically is the film, I think you could do so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb guide for the enthusiast. 9 Jan 2014
Format:Library Binding|Verified Purchase
A walk through of the movie showing more in depth details which enhance the features of the production. Outlines the main characters to understand them in their roles. Good value for money and well presented.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for HG fans :) 2 Oct 2014
By Mack
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its great! I get loads of info which takes me ages to find out by flicking through pages of the book. It is great for fans of the books and films. Its informative, got loads of pics from the movie. My only point maybe that half the book is taken up with a page per tribute and it is not that detailed but not too much of a problem.
Great product for a great price. Great for fans of book and films and came quickly.
