The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins
First in the ground-breaking HUNGER GAMES trilogy. Set in a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying reality TV show is taking place. Twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called The Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed. When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her younger sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.

I've read this book three different times, and each time, I appreciated it differently.⁠

This last time around, I borrowed the special edition read by Tatiana Maslany, and I was utterly sucked back into district 12, among the dirt and turmoil as I had to listen to Maslany narrate this in Katniss' POV and she sounds exactly as I imagined Katniss would be.⁠

To be honest I got really bored of the book, maybe because I watched the movies already and I know how ends. I couldn‘t really visualize the scenes like usual when I read books.

Mehso-so

So this has sparked a lot of mixed feelings for me. It hovers between pick and so-so and finally settled for the latter. The concept and the imagination are really good but I feel it lacks the implementation. The main character is flawed which is nice, it makes them human to me rather just book heroes who are all mighty and strong. Coming to the harsh regime and the capitol I don't get how can they be so advanced with flying cameras, (continued⤵️)

ishan0986 genetic mutations, all healing medicines and yet on the other hand be so primitive as to let humans handle their precious resources like coal, agricultural goods and so on. Such regimes would not want to loose the precious resources on the account of human error. The parachutes are either invisible to other players or they are very small to be seen from afar. Could only make guesses at this point 6mo
ishan0986 Haymitch is pushing for
the couples angle from the
beginning and seems to
know it would work, maybe
he knows something we don't know. The people are deliberately kept hungry and low on food rations so that their minds are always occupied with procuring food rather than revolting. Katniss is liked by all in the district the reason for which escapes me. Maybe due to her father. A little more facts about him would have been really nice.
6mo
Scochrane26 I don‘t think Katniss is liked by everyone. Her dad was liked, I think. Her mom & sister are well-liked & respected because they heal people. 6mo

100 pages in, the story is all around the place right now. I like katniss but a few of her points are straight up weird for me. Maybe it will change with time.
Also I completed my 1000/1000 pages for #NutsInMay Now would pushing for 1500.

Reggie Oof. When I finished the 3rd and final books I was sad for days. FOR DAYS! Lol, hope you like it. 6mo

Scochrane26 @ishan0986 You will get sad. It‘s worth it though. I wasn‘t sad for days, but there‘s been some events that have stayed with me. Katniss is a flawed character, just stick with her. (edited) 6mo

1. Yes I have. I have listened to a number of books this way; some of them have included the tagged book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane and some others. I have an CD player that I have used to listen to them. It‘s how I got into audiobooks.

Yes, Katniss! She is so powerful and strong. She did whine a bit too much about the whole love affair, but that could just be her age. I loved Rue, I loved Cinna, I loved the arena with all the plottwists happening everyday. It had been years since I read this serie, and it was as good as I remember!

This SF and New York Times Bestseller book by Suzanne Collins is an absolute page-turner! The book is so captivating and action-packed, it was quite difficult to put down. Having students do an IR for this book would be best, due to the fact this book may not interest everyone with heavier topics. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hunger-games #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link provided give some great resources for teachers to use to introduce the book and author, as well as activities for when students are finished reading to check for comprehension. The UDL strategy best fit would be 7.1 with the book trailer provided in the link. The EL strategy best fit would be 42 to help stay on track in the book. 9mo

This SF, LC multi award winning and NY Times Best seller is a great series to use with small groups in your classroom, and is a favorite among students. This dystopian novel highlights the struggles of poverty and perseverance. Katniss Everdeen volunteers to fight other children to the death in order to save her sister from her potential demise. In the end, Katniss discovers the major hardships of her world, and what needs to be done to fix it.

Karissacurrier This book/series would work best in a LC, as it is a series that would work best with small group discussions and activities. Information from Edutopia provides great methods for conducting LCs with your students. EL strategies 36 and 44 will help students engage in book discussions through HOT questions. UDL principle 8.3 will help to foster student collaboration within the LC, and encourage all students to participate within the group. 9mo

Nothing better than a dystopian novel that makes your own dystopian life less disturbing. If you've missed the whole Hunger Games hype this is a great read. I would definitely recommend reading the series before watching the movies, so you can enjoy the same rage I had when everything I imagined got smashed to pieces. You'd think i'd have learned by now that the book is always better.

This makes me think of Katniss Everdeen and her precision in skill with her bow and arrow.

Hunger games is fast and quickly gets your attention and before you even notice it is a fight for survival, rather a game. By the end all you can think of is the characters and the book and what happens next which is the main reason I finished in 3 days.

Fiction: In my novel there are 3 main settings: district 12, forest, the capital in katniss‘ home she is very shy but when she is alone or with her close friend Gale she is happy venturing and enjoying life in the forest. Her personality changes in every setting she goes.

Charlie.P the question is *Thinking about Setting* In another time or place, how would the story change? Where else could the story take place?

Fiction: The character in my book Katniss was always up going and socially confident until realized that in her district/province being like that is very rare because everyone in her district is poor Adding to that information her dad dies and that adds to her personality. She is very untalkative to others only using her voice in markets and alert occasions her family isn‘t very close to her. People would not approach her and ask to be friends.

Charlie.P the question is How does the character's actions affect other people in the story? 13mo

Novel Science Fiction/ post-apocalyptic fiction
I picked this novel because I had already watched the movie and I found out that there was a novel of it so I wanted to see what difference there will be with the book and the novel. I am also looking for connections and comparisons with the book and the movie. it is also good for me to read this book because I already know half of what is going to happen so it won't be hard for me to understand.

I was super into this book when it first came out and it holds up nicely. The concept of having children fight to the death on live, mandatory TV is just as gruesome as ever and the confusion Katniss feels about being simultaneously tossed into a romance and a horror story is palpable. I especially loved the ties I found to the prequel book, like the little old goat herder from the Seam and the mention of a single Victor pre-Haymitch.

KrystalClarity Added a spoiler warning for Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, sorry guys! I try to be mindful about spoilers but that one slipped right through my fingers 😬 14mo
