I’ve just finished reading the first instalment of the trilogy “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins.
It was light reading but an adventurous yarn; aimed at young teenagers to adults.
The books takes place in an undisclosed future time period after the annihilation of the United States, in a authoritarian nation known as Panem. Panem consists of a immensely wealthy Capitol and twelve districts (formerly thirteen but was obliterated for disobedience) surrounding. Those districts which are under the domination of the Capitol. Katniss Everdeen, lives in the poorest District 12 where people die of malnourishment. As punishment for a rebellion generations; every year one boy and one girl (aged between 12 and 18) from each of the twelve districts are selected by raffle and forced to partake in the Hunger Games. Those Games are televised events where the protagonists called tributes, must fight to the death until only one remains. The winning tribute is then rewarded handsomely with food, money and a house. The purpose of the Hunger Games is to provide a show for the Capitol and to serve as a warning to the Districts to remind them of the Capitol's power.
I’ve just started reading “British Comics; a cultural history” by James Chapman.
ive just finished reading this, and its awesome :)
i want to go and see the film now :)
I've still got to read the third installment in the series, but I agree. I am waiting for the film to come out - which it will do in September - and will get it. I also believe that the other books will be covered by the film industry.
