I am not a Serial Killer is about a teen boy who's sure he's the evilest thing ever born, is told from his PoV, and yet that gets darn close to 4 stars. Never read anything like this!!!?????? The writing is excellent and the plot propels the reader through the book at a rapid rate. I was in the Hunger Games.
Guys, I 100% see why these have been so hyped over the past decade. Gale and Katniss, growing farther and farther apart, return to District 12 to film more propos. The film held the March and spring opening weekend records for four years until they were broken by. The meat and plants from the woods combined with the exertion it took to get them have given me a healthier body than most of those I see around me. It is probably best if he is dead. The Gamemakers announce that the rules have changed, and that the two tributes from a district can serve as co-victors. Archived from on June 3, 2013.
Few minor changes, like in the end President Snow shown thinking representing its start of story unlike novel which ends. Yes, this book is full of imperfections. What really annoyed me about the writing style was that I knew paragraphs before if something exciting was going to happen. Talk about a smart girl being utterly clueless! I suppose they had become inured to it, but on the other hand, that meant they knew the horror of it. I beg of you all. Your story often rests on the shoulders of the protagonist.
She fights for the ones she loves, she's brave and doesn't need to be saved. To protect her younger sister, she is sent to the capitol, along with local boy Peeta, to 'participate' in the annual H Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it. Yes, this book is full of imperfections. The audiobook was released simultaneously on August 24, 2010 by Scholastic Audio. Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. Eventually, Katniss and Peeta must face off with Cato, the only other surviving tribute, but before that they are all pursued by wild dogs which are actually genetically mutated killing machines.
I fail to understand its very high ratings. The main character, 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, volunteers for the Hunger Games to keep her younger sister from being required to participate and her experiences and fight to survive are the heart of the book. Then together with Peeta the other lottery winner they travel to the capital and begin preparations for the opening ceremonies and ultimately their death in The Hunger Games. The main objective of life is to do exactly that: live it. Now, perhaps, authors have since tried to recreate her.

You think of futuristic arena tales and your mind instantly sinks to the lowest common denominator. Her mother and little sister, Prim, sleep nearby. To me, it's like one of those shows that medieval people used to put on, where a person would be trapped in a cage so that a tiger could kill him in front of a laughing audience. Each time Katniss exchanges her name for the tessera, her chances of being the one whose name is called increase. She forces herself into a stoic determination to win, a philosophy made difficult by the kindly Peeta.
Some weaknesses might be that the author might have rushed some parts of the chapters. Would it have changed anything in the slightest? The Hunger Games is set in Panem, a dystopia that appears to reflect America after some type of failed revolution by the lower class. So, Katniss' little sister, Prim, is selected for the games, but Katniss took her place to save her. These books just piss me off. What more could you possibly ask for out of a book? Ever since the last rebellion, they have a yearly event called the Hunger Games.
But that is me not being in tune with the mainstream population which is too distracted with billboards. I find this hard to believe, given the similarities, but to each her own.
