The Hunger Games (The Movie) -- Mockingjay

Suzanne Collins has taken me on an amazing adventure in the dystopia future in her trilogy the hunger games. These books include:

  • Book 1: The Hunger Games

  • Book 2: Catching Fire

  • Book 3: Mockingjay

It is going to be a movie! I think the release date is March 2012. One year from now.

Here is a summary of the book:

The country of Panem is located in North America. It is what is left after world destruction. The country is made up of 13 districts and a capitol. The 13th district is said to be have been destroyed by the capitol for defiance. The other 12 districts must also pay for the defiance of the people.

The capitol has their annual hunger games. It is a television show. Two children from each of the 12 districts are selected to participate. In this show, the 24 total contestants fight to kill off the others. The last person living is the winner.

Katniss is the main character in the series. Her younger sister Prim was selected as the female from her district for the 74th hunger games. Katniss volunteers to take her place in the hunger games, which is allowed.

Peeta is selected as the male winner from the 12th district. Surprisingly, Peeta reveals that he is in love with Katniss. The bad news is that two people can’t win the hunger games and they’re both in it. I don’t want to say anything else about the books. The basics of what I’ve said above take place in the first book. I’m currently reading book # 3. There is going to be a movie about this book or at least those are the rumors I’ve read online. You can get the books: Here is a book trailer:
