This was a great idea for a book but it's clearly been written in a hurry and it's ultimately disappointing. I had worked out most of the symbolism myself and there are some serious omissons as well. It would have been good if the complete journey of each tribute had been included, instead of just a note as to how their name reflected their district. It's a fairly bitty and short book and overpriced, in my view.

I got bored reading it, loads of stuff you already know if you've read the books, but repeated time and time again before you eventually reach something new. I deleted it before I got a quarter of the way through

This was an interesting read. I bought it because I loved the hunger games books but it is a good stand alone read too I think.

Very tenuous connection in some examples. Opportunistic attempt to cash in on the popularity of the Hunger Games series. Not worth buying.

Interesting in its way, but only for a limited audience. All the information is available o line anyway so this adds nothing new.

This is a great book for looking at the symbols used in the popular hunger game franchise. I must for those of of that thought three books was just not enough.

I really enjoyed reading the book and finding out about the detailed meanings and symbolism that Collins incorporated into the world of Panem, though I was slightly disappointed with the fact that the topics discussed were presented in alphabetical order, rather than linked to each other through themes or roles.

On the whole, however, it is a good read and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the Hunger Games universe.

Make sure you read all the hunger games then this because it helps you understand the story sooooooooo much. I think that any hunger games fan should read this to know why the names of people and things are called that and how there names show there personality. Everyone should read it
