The Hunger Games Triology.

Just finished with the last page of the book “mockinjay” – the last one of the hunger games triology , by Suzanne Collins. Well at first i thought it was going to be another one of the novels about love where the girl was torn between two guys who loved her but she can’t decide whom to choose. But its completely a different experience to read the book. It is packed with all the stuff required to get you hooked ( so hooked that i finished the 3 books in almost 4 days ). There is love , war , opression , calculations , the dark schemes in politics , and most important of all one’s instinct to stay alive.

Heres a brief overview (from wiki of couse):

“The Hunger Games trilogy takes place in an unidentified future time period after the destruction of the current nations of North America, in a totalitarian nation known as “Panem”. Panem consists of a hugely rich Capitol, located in what used to be the Rocky Mountains, and twelve (formerly thirteen) surrounding, poorer districts which are under the hegemony of the Capitol.

The Capitol is lavishly rich and technologically futuristic, but the twelve Districts are in varying states of poverty – the trilogy’s narrator and protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, lives in the poorest District 12, formerly Appalachia, where people regularly die of starvation. As punishment for a rebellion generations previous against the Capitol wherein twelve of the districts were defeated and the thirteenth destroyed, every year one boy and one girl from each of the remaining twelve districts, between the ages of twelve and eighteen, are selected by lottery and forced to participate in the “Hunger Games”. The Games are a televised event where the participants, called “tributes”, must fight to the death in a dangerous outdoor arena until only one remains. The winning tribute and his/her corresponding district is then rewarded handsomely with food and plenty. The purpose of the Hunger Games is to provide entertainment for the Capitol and to serve as a warning to the Districts to remind them of the Capitol’s power and lack of remorse”.

But katniss -“the girl on fire” as she is commonly reffered to in the triology triggers something that no one foresaw. A rebellion. Which puts everyone she cared for in danger.. The book ends with the thought that the games never end.

Its preety awesome (atleast i loved it!) . Every chapter ends with a suspense (more often a shock) which leaves you wantin to read more! This action packed thriller is definately a MUST read to all those who enjoy reading. 😀

Guess that sums it up. . . but now that i finished the triology (like my life depended on it..). . anyone have any other awesome book in mind? – kind of feelin jobless again.

  1. I was searching for ‘The Hunger Games’ at the fair. I asked if they have it. They said only one edition was there. Seems like you took it. Therefore, I bought a book called ‘The Cry of the Icemark’. it’s not a series, so you will be going jobless in lesser time than you did after reading The Hunger Games Trilogy. Still need it?

    • u should have bought the entire series! it was there at the book fair, i kind of bought only the 1st one and ended up readin the others online ( causin severe headache, as i finished 1 book in 1 day). . n yeah sure! wats the book about btw? -Namrata B

      • Okay. Didn’t you get what I said? They only had one copy of The Hunger Games. And you bought that the day before I seeked it out in the fair. I had no chance of knowing that you bought the first one. And they didn’t have the third one. That reminds me, I heard you are going to give Annie that in the e-book. That will be fortunate, since I have e-book in my cell.

      • nope i din, coz anushmita bought the entire series they VERY next period. i m not talkin about ONE book, talkin about the ENTIRE series. ( caps indicate important words XD)
        n yeah! i’ll give the 2nd n 3rd book in d ebook format. 🙂

  2. I La-La-Love Hunger Games! I admit I wasn’t particularly enamored with the 2nd book but the third, boy oh boy, what a thriller! I loved how it had the intricacies of politics in it, very much like in our world here. That sort of stuff makes the book so much relatable and fun to read!

    • yes! exactly!! i never thought it would be such a amazing thriller and also wayYy more realistic than i thought it would be! the 3rd book!!! OMG! the thing with peeta and district 12 blown to bits! But ahhhhh PRIM.. that was too dark. but LOVED the ending!
