About this deal

it's still a league-and-a-half better than Twilight, not that there isn't much that isn't better written than Meyer's delicious collection of vampire doggerel. In 2008, Collins published the first book in The Hunger Games trilogy, which quickly became a bestseller and spawned two successful film adaptations. I'm obviously very late on writing a review for this series, as there have been four fantastic blockbuster movies for these books that have been out for so long.

Several co-workers and I exchange books and one passed this one along, saying that she thought I'd like it. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Tim O'Brien designed the US and Canada's original book covers, and Scholastic UK’s iconic "classic" editions in 2012, released the same year the first Hunger Games film hit screens around the world. The cover art is by UK Artist Freya Betts and the design takes inspiration from Tim O’Brien’s iconic mockingjay cover art. The story delves deeper into the growing rebellion against the Capitol and the challenges Katniss faces as she becomes a symbol of hope and resistance.

Tackling themes including inequality, accountability and ethics, Suzanne Collins’ best-selling trilogy features on the BBC’s list of 100 most influential books. Check out the gorgeous, brand new, deluxe hardcover collection of The Hunger Games book series from Scholastic UK. I was a bit grumpy when Collins used the tactic in Book One, but when it reared up again in Book Three, the books became thoroughly diminished in my eyes. As a sharp contrast to Katniss, Peeta is the nice guy who does not care much about winning the game.

Scherzi a parte, io avevo in libreria il volume con tutta la trilogia da molto tempo, e visto che mi ricordavo poco o niente dei film, ho colto la palla al balzo e ho iniziato la trilogia ha mente fresca. This jump is As Katniss becomes the reluctant face of the rebellion, she witnesses the devastating consequences of war and the toll it takes on her friends and loved ones. Collins almost certainly chose the first-person present because it builds tension (FPpresent is a standard usage in thrillers), but she wanted to be able to use things like heavy foreshadowing, which can only honestly be done in first-person past tense or in the third person. All four books have been made into feature films, the first three starring Jennifer Lawence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks and Donald Sutherland.

A stream of human unpleasantness, cruelty, cynicism, lovingly described pain and brutalities, lascivious dwelling on injury and slaughter and gratuitous death. In the first instalment of the series, The Hunger Games Collins introduces us to Katniss Everdeen, a strong-willed and resourceful young woman living in the impoverished District 12.
