Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name.Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for children s television She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy nominated Little Bear and Oswald She also co wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby Most recently she was the Head Writer for Entertainment s Clifford s Puppy Days.While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O she met children s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children s books a try.Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings In New York City, you re much likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you re not going to find a tea party What you might find Well, that s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five part series, The Underland Chronicles Suzanne also has a rhyming picture book illustrated by Mike Lester entitled When Charlie McButton Lost Power.She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.The books she is most successful for in teenage eyes are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay These books have won several awards, including the GA Peach Award.. Popular Ebook Hunger Games I have got to stop poking fun at this series with memes. Someone take them away from me!Nah, I didn't love this book. I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that. I mean it when I say this book deserves recognition, and honestly, I'd rather people were reading this and following a heroine as independent as Katniss, rather than a simp like Bella or Bethany. The Hunger Games is high-quality YA, intelligently written, and despite its flaws it's worthy of success. Here's where I become one of those lone rangers on a forum uttering the forbidden words: Battle Royale. Stop! Put down the pitchforks! Let me make my point, okay?At the risk of sounding like Hipster Mermaid, I read BR and watched the movie long before I discovered THG. So the second I read the synopsis, the first thought that popped into my head was, "Sounds a lot like Battle Royale!"It reads a lot like BR, too. I'm sorry, THG fans; but you can literally pair up characters from this book and fit them snugly into the moulds of those from BR. Katniss is Nanahara, Peeta is Noriko, Cato is Kazuo Kiriyama (he even volunteered, just like the Careers!), President Snow is the guy played by Beat Takeshi, Effie is the bouncy girl from the training video, Clove is Mitsuko...the list goes on.I know, people. I know Suzanne Collins said she hasn't read BR. I find this hard to believe, given the similarities, but to each her own. The above is simply something that really, really stuck out to me. The entire way through, I was finding similarities. This isn't to say The Hunger Games doesn't follow its own course, and have its own storyline. It does. But think of the people who lash out at Cassandra Clare because of the similarities between her work and J.K. Rowling's. If you're one of the people who feels angry about that, consider that perhaps the people who read BR, then THG, and noticed the same glaring similarities as I might feel the same way. I am not a Harry Potter fan, thus I don't know what the comparisons are between the Mortal Instruments and the Harry Potter books - but I did read both BR and THG, and personally, I came across many similarities that I could not overlook.Moving on, the romance. The romance in this book drove me insane. I don't understand what the constant need to have a love triangle is, but people who say, "There are no teams!" are just kidding themselves. If there were never meant to be teams, and if this book didn't want to have "just another love triangle" ... then it shouldn't have had "just another love triangle". That's the way it is, I'm afraid. I am absolutely and utterly sick of love triangles, and what was worse about this one was the second I read Peeta's name and his history with Katniss, I knew it was going to be all about Katniss loving Peeta and Gale trying to muscle in. It was predictable, and a Plot Tumor. Think of how amazing this book could have been had there been no romance, or if Katniss had actually been forced to kill Peeta. I literally waited, with baited breath, for Katniss to kill Peeta. But she didn't. Convenience saved her.The synopsis of this book suggests that Katniss's humanity will be questioned, and she will be forced to make agonizing decisions in the name of her survival, but never once does she kill for the sake of herself. Every kill she makes is either in mercy, accidental or in lieu of child murder (Marvel's death was carried out after he speared Rue; Katniss's killing him would then play out as comeuppance rather than Katniss killing for the sake of herself). Katniss's hands remain proverbially clean, the whole way through the Games. This is simply not what I signed up for. It's unrealistic, to begin with. Biologically, the human body and mind is wired for survival at all costs. It's true. Think about it: when someone develops dementia, the mind literally breaks down to nothing. Why, then, does the body not simply give up? Why doesn't it shut down, because the mind no longer works? Survival. Survival is why. The main objective of life is to do exactly that: live it. Animals exhibit this to a tee. Smaller animals have faster heartbeats than larger animals, because the lower down they are in the food chain, the more ready they are always required to be to rely on flight to escape predators. This is why Katniss's lily-white innocence remaining intact until the end irks me. She never has to make any difficult decisions. She is never forced to wrestle with her humanity, give up her principles, shame herself in front of the people who love her who must watch her participate. She is unabashedly perfect. Her inability to make friends doesn't even factor in; everyone immediately adores her regardless. People are willing to die for her, for heaven's sake. The Capitol practically eats the dirt she walks on. And this doesn't change over the course of the series. I like flaws, man. What can I say? Perfection doesn't interest me. Innocence doesn't interest me, especially in a dystopian setting, where brutality is law-enforced. It just doesn't convince me, is all. Having said all that, I simply cannot fault Collins' amazing ability to build suspense. I'll put a pin in the excruciatingly boring first 140 pages, and say that the portion of this book that featured the actual Games was just thrilling. The prose was sparse, with the feeling of unedited thought; I love that. A lot of people don't, but I do. Actually, come to think of it, Collins' writing was stellar overall. I'm a huge fan of first person present tense, especially during snappy and gripping action scenes, of which this book had many. Honestly? These books just piss me off. I don't know what it is. The setting was smart and well-drawn, the anti-violence message was clear and good, and despite being a constant annoyance, Katniss was a fiercely independent and capable female character. This I greatly appreciate. It's not a bad book, by any means, but I'm just not a fan of it.Aside: I have to laugh, kittens, because a lot of people need to crack open a history book before they make wild claims about the form of government going on here. Numero uno: the government system is not fascist. Please, don't say that it is. It just isn't. At all. It also isn't Marxist, either. I'm not a fan of Marx or his boyfriend Frederick, but don't shame the man and his gratuitous beard. It's more like a very obscure form of Stalinism (but without the weird foreign policy).In fandoms like this, the naysayers are never without backlash. I've run into a fair few people who scream about how insane I am for not being in all-consuming love with this book (as if three stars is suddenly a bad rating!). Honestly, I don't really care if you loved the book. Sure, if you did, that's great. It's brilliant when people can enjoy the written word, and this book is not terrible, I did not hate it, and if I had never read any dystopian before it I would probably lobotomy-fangirl over it until I died. But right now it isn't for me.Another aside: I ended up reading CF in full because a friend forced me to. I don't know what was different the second time around, but when I gave it another try I realized that book is outstanding. Definitely the best in the series. Far better than this one, and let's only refer to the last book from now on as Dat Flop. In fact, let's not refer to it at all. Let's pretend it never happened. I beg of you all.I tried hard to jump on this bandwagon, but in all honesty, I just don't really have any passionate feelings for this series. Comprende?Bonus Time!Look, I'm sorry. But I had to do it.

  4. I was forced into watching Mockingjay Part II this weekend To clarify, I watched the second part of the last Hunger Games movie without having read any of the books, without having watched any of the movies.Needless to say, I was confused as fuck.So many questions and thoughts ran through my mind as I watched the movie Why is Peeta so thin Did that huge ass bruise really disappear from her neck the next day Is Katniss supposed to look like she s about to burst into tears at any given moment, or [...]


  5. Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children In a YA book Two reasons why this book rocks a It is not Twilight, and b I really hate reality shows Seriously, how long would it take for reality shows to evolve from Survivor to Hunger Games Yes, this book is full of imperfections It often requires a strenuous suspension of disbelief It can cause a painful amount of eye rolling and shaking fist at the book pages Its style is choppy a [...]


  6. A lot of things are troubling me about The Hunger Games A lot of things which I and perceive and which are not solely connected with this book but with the metaphor behind the words People attach themselves to fictional freedom without seeing what really something is and which unfortunately is here to stay because you can t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep You can t make a shift on a deeper level, if the only thing that attracts you to this book is a vision of fight, retaliation an [...]


  7. If I were a teenager or recommending this to a teen, I might give it 3 as an adult, I give it 2 OTIt s a potentially exciting but gruesome story, but most of the characters were rather flat, much of the plot was predictable it s not hugely original in particular, it is VERY similar to the Japanese Battle Royale , and there were too many flaws in the plot I fail to understand its very high ratings.Post apocalyptic America Panem is divided into a wealthy and technologically advanced Capitol and tw [...]


  8. For a long time now, I ve wanted to rewrite my review of The Hunger Games so that I could tell you why I don t just love this series, but why I also think it s important It is beautiful for the unflinching way it shows you, as a reader, your own willingness to disregard people who are different from you how you are the Capitol audience But, it is important as a story about girls I had not initially thought about articulating that point because it seemed so obvious to me, and I am bad at recogniz [...]


  9. I LOVE THIS BOOK I ve said to a few people that if I wasn t married, I d have to marry this book I read the 400 page ARC in a less than 24 hour time period so quickly that it was never even on my currently reading shelf , which I ve only done before with HP books, and I ve just officially put the first book on my 2008 favorites shelf I feel pretty safe in saying that if this isn t still my favorite book of the year when next January rolls around, that I ll eat a hat As soon as I finished reading [...]


  10. Fantastically Written Ooooh yeah Compelling Yup Super Quick Read Most definitely Original Umwell shuffles feet, since I seem to be a rare non five star er not original at all really Man, I wish someone on my friends list here has also read Battle Royale and this book The Hunger Games WAS pretty fantastic, hence the four stars though I would have given 3 1 2 if the choice was available I ate it up, shouting into other rooms and offices that I was going to be shoving the book into their hands as s [...]


  11. I don t know how to say it exactly OnlyI want to die as myself I don t want them to change me in there Turn me into some kind of monster that I m not I keep wishing I could think of a way to show the Capitol that they don t own me That I m than just a piece in their Games You have a remarkable memory I remember everything about you You re the one who wasn t paying attention So, I really really liked this book Of course, I loved Peeta How can I not He is perfect But Katniss Why She is so strong [...]


  12. Clearly Gregor was merely the prelude Suzanne Collins, you ve been holding out on us, missy As an author we were accustomed to your fun adventures involving a boy, his sister, and a world beneath our world I think it s fair to say that we weren t really expecting something like The Hunger Games At least I wasn t But reading it gave me a horribly familiar feeling There is a certain strain of book that can hypnotize you into believing that you are in another time and place roughly 2.3 seconds afte [...]


  13. It seems weird that I never reviewed The Hunger Games I don t know why I didn t when it was a series that completely took over my life for a short while But recently I ve been thinking about posting something in this review space and after just watching the second film which I think was amazing and better than the first , now seems like as good a time as any to talk about why I love Katniss and nearly everything about this series.I gave this book four stars back in 2011 and I m going to leave th [...]

  15. Oh no You ve awakened the beast It s Jackniss Yeah So maybe Matthew Fox from Lost isn t exactly the person you had in mind when you thought about who they might cast as Katniss in The Hunger Games, but I was inspired to create that after I saw this site called Jackimals You might want to wait to visit it, though, because it can suck you in like an unexplained time warp flash.I was also inspired to create the Jackniss after I read a discussion that deeply disturbed me.Somewhere, possibly on , I r [...]

  17. I sat down to this book prepared to be captivated in its pages But I was disappointed I was always expecting that finally the author would show her genius and knock me off my feet But it never happened Yes, it was exciting and entertaining But it wasn t a truly great book I could not stop comparing this to Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Like Fahrenheit 451, it was a dystopian novel set in the future, but Fahrenheit 451 had significant symbolism on every page, paragraph, and even half the sentenc [...]



  18. SO THIS IS WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES is a fantastic, breathless and somewhat brutal read that once you start you simply can t put down again Initially I had no idea what this book was about or what to expect in terms of YA writing, it had just been recommended to me by so many people and had such a buzz surrounding it that I had to find out for myself why Well let me say I was not disappointed and have now joined the legions of Suzanne Collins fans in awaiting her next instalme [...]


  19. So, unlike some reviewers of this book, I was not repulsed by the premise, nor did I think this book was overly graphic or gratuitously violent Before I commence my review, two things 1 I am generally a fan of post apocalyptic struggle of the downtrodden literature, and 2 I am generally a fan of imposing female characters Now then.I would agree with those who suggested that this book is Twilight in a Battle Royale setting The characters are admittedly likeable although that s arguable , but tha [...]


  20. Well this book lived up to a lot of the hype that surrounds it While the name and cover still do not grab my attention the story, once started, did.This book is written in first perspective, from the heroine s aspect Her name is Katniss Everdeen She starts off in her home, a simple, poor area of the land She is the provider for her mother and sister with her hunting skills To protect her younger sister, she is sent to the capitol, along with local boy Peeta, to participate in the annual Hunger G [...]


  21. The Most Dangerous Game meets Survivor I loved it deft characterization wrapped tightly around this lean, brutal plot that absolutely grabbed me and hung on This was one that I started reading in the morning and snarled at all comers until I had finished it in the evening HIGHLY RECOMMEND wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I m only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel s presence on my bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can t believe I just said hea [...]


  22. UPDATE 15 April 2014 I ve now seen the movies, watched the movie of the book I didn t liked it made less sense than the book But it was really pretty to look at.Pearl RuledRating 1 of five p81 What was I thinking I don t like books about teens Well, that s not entirely trueI 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 I don t like books about teen girls Well, that s not entirely true, either [...]


  23. allow me to be relevant for a moment oh my god, this book is outstanding it is all good things battle royale, blood of heroes one of the best movies ever made dont argue with me , and all the best elements of this survivalist gary paulsen jag i am on it kept me up way past my bedtime last night, because i could not stop reading, even though my eyes did not want to be awake and now we veer, as ever, into the personal this book is my comeuppance i suppose it is factually my second comeuppance i us [...]


  24. First of all, I know you re looking at my rating and wondering what s wrong with me For one thing, this book s gotten at least 4 stars from everyone else For another, everyone seems to think that it s the best book of the year I won t dispute what everyone else has said about this book, because it s not a complete disaster It s just that it s one of the worst novels I ve ever read The story begins great I love the dystopian setting, even if it is a bit unrealistic Katniss is a great protagonist [...]

  26. I started this book thinking the idea was preposterous a government choosing to squelch rebellion by forcing its citizens to give up their children as contenders in the ultimate reality show of death to the last survivor Yeah right, and yet it reminded me a lot of the absurdity of the Nazi party, child armies in Africa, and even back to the gladiators of the Roman empire I realized I believed a government could be this arrogant and wrathful, that society could be this absurd, that the common peo [...]



  27. When it comes to The Hunger Games, I feel like I m walking into the ballroom in my tuxedo with a bottle of champagne in each hand only to find no one there except for a lone janitor sweeping up confetti along with a couple of people passed out under tables and there s only a bottle of cr me de menthe left at the bar In other words, I m late to the party.Since I m so tardy, I don t think there s anything I can add, particularly since YA isn t my usual thing So I ll just give it four stars and not [...]
