Review of 'Guide to the Hunger games',
This review is from: Guide to the Hunger Games (Hunger Games Film Tie in) (Paperback)
I think this is a great guide to the hunger games and definitely a book that will suit hardcore hunger games fans and new fans who have yet to read the books. I myself am a devoted fan of the books and wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to the hunger games craze, so I decided to buy this guide, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! I thought this book would be just a recap of the books and film, but really its so much more. In the book the author has included interesting historical facts that influenced the hunger games trilogy, as well as a full analysation of all 3 books in great detail. I found some aspects of the trilogy a bit confusing but this book cleared them up for me and gave me extra information so i could have a clearer insight into what was going on in suzanne collins's mind when she wrote the books. The writer Caroline Carpenter has included a little biography of each important character in the books and has included information about each of their significance to other characters, the book and the political story line. She has also recapped every major event in the trilogy including the famous love triangle between katniss, Gale and Peeta, which is great for people who want to know about the book before seeing the film, but don't have the time to read the actual trilogy, or just want to gain some extra knowledge on the trilogy that is currently what anyone is talking about. Furthermore, I think that this book is really for fans of any age as for the younger fans quizzes, and games are included and for the older fans there is a more historical and political aspect displayed in the actual text.
Also the illustrations are beautiful and link in with the film very well, capturing each actor perfectly, good job!
